Colleges and communities can reduce alcohol-related harm to students - 2
Narrator: This is NIH Health Matters. I’m Joe Balintfy. Risks and consequences associated with drinking can include car accidents, DUIs or DWIs, physical fights, and sexual assaults. Dr. Ralph Hingson an expert on alcohol prevention at the NIH says a study has begun on college campuses.
Hingson: What they did was they selected 10 universities in North Carolina. And match them according to their size and their readiness to engage in activities to prevent these drinking problems; and then randomly allocated half of them to receive the intervention.
Narrator: For more information on the SPARC intervention, visit www.niaaa.nih.gov. Health Matters is produced by the NIH, part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
