NATIONAL ALCOHOL SCREENING DAY IS APRIL 5 AT ODU

National Alcohol Screening Day will be held at Old Dominion University from noon to 2 p.m. Thursday, April 5, to offer students, faculty, staff and the community an opportunity to learn more about how alcohol can affect health.

According to Cynthia Duncan, health education coordinator, too many students do not realize the potential costs of risky drinking; that even a moderate amount of alcohol could jeopardize their health. The focus of National Alcohol Screening Day is to give students and other participants the facts needed to draw the line for themselves.

Brief self-assessments on drinking habits and behavior, as well as written self-tests, will be conducted in the South Mall of Webb Center. Participants can also hear an educational presentation on how alcohol can affect health and the risk factors associated with alcohol use. Free, confidential screenings are also available.

For more information, contact Cynthia Duncan at 683-5927 or cduncan@odu.edu.
