Aaron White, PHD (National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism) will update the audience on the most recent and compelling research concerning the effect of alcohol on the developing brain. He brings together a sophisticated developmental understanding of the adolescent and the structural changes that the brain undergoes during that period of growth that affects behavioral choices.

In this webinar, registrants will learn how research further informs how early alcohol use can be particularly damaging to the critical developmental process occurring in the brain and the urgency of deterring underage drinking and postponing the onset of alcohol use in young people.
