Excessive alcohol consumption is Wisconsin most persistent public health challenge.   Public Health officials, community coalitions and law enforcement are seeing indications that suggest alcohol-related problems, such as domestic violence, underage drinking and drunk driving are increasing during this tumultuous period.  But now, there are evidence-based ways to address and prevent many of these problems.

Alcohol Policy: Essential, Effective and Evolving is the theme that ties together two general sessions and 16 workshops on a wide range of alcohol policy topics at the virtual October 8 Alcohol Policy Seminar.  New topics including Pop-Up Beer Gardens (if you haven’t heard of them, you will) , monitoring Click and Collect remote sale pick-up, Wisconsin new alcohol outcomes dashboard and mapping alcohol outlets will be offered along with updates on Place of Last Drink compilations and a chance to tune up your media advocacy skills. Two general sessions will feature well-known and respected leaders in the field, Professor Traci Toomey of the University of Minnesota and Michael Sparks, author and CADCA trainer.

Because this session is virtual, registration is just $75 per person for access to all the sessions and their handouts.  Some community coalitions and their partner agencies may be eligible for a registration fee waiver. 

Contact your local Regional Prevention Center of the Alliance for Wisconsin Youth for details.  Learn more about the sessions and register online at https://www.uwsp.edu/conted/Pages/Wisconsin-Alcohol-Policy-Seminar.aspx.
