WEBINAR: LIFESAVERS TRACK: IMPAIRED DRIVING – Surveying Communities for Alcohol Problem Identification
July 2, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am CDT
Whether you’re a seasoned program manager seeking a refresher on alcohol problem identification or a staff member who is new to impaired driving, this session will address the basic epidemiology of alcohol-impaired crashes. It will also highlight variations in drinking and driving patterns that may be the result of local conditions, such as college town or urban and rural locations. Information on epidemiology and variations would be accompanied by discussion of the need to align alcohol impaired driving interventions with the specific local problem.
