For a community coalition to be most effective, its members and staff must be well equipped with research on the latest substance abuse trends. Coalitions are most likely to implement successful community interventions when they are informed and evidence-based.

This webinar will outline new research on trends in and consequences of underage drinking as well as interventions to prevent and reduce underage drinking that have emerged since the 2007 Call to Action.  The course will explore recent trends in injury deaths linked to underage drinking, binge drinking and driving under the influence, effects of underage drinking on the developing brain, blackouts, and academic performance. It will also examine research on interventions that are individually-oriented, policy/environmental, and community-based interventions.
