Study finds strategies to reduce college drinking – 3
Narrator: This is NIH Health Matters. I’m Joe Balintfy. Researchers have conducted the Safer California Universities study of college and community alcohol prevention strategies at 14 large public universities in California.
Hingson: They randomly allocated half of them to receive an intervention that involved a campus community partnership.
Narrator: Dr. Ralph Hingson is with the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism.
Hingson: What they found was that in the communities where these interventions were implemented there were reductions in drinking into intoxication.
Narrator: The greatest reductions were found at universities with the highest intensity of intervention implementation, achieved through heavy publicity and highly visible enforcement activities.
