“…it has become clear, that during adolescence…the brain is highly plastic and shaped by experience…Alcohol appears to interfere with the changes in circuitry that occur during learning.” –Dr. Aaron White, Duke University. Keep up to date with local and nationwide coverage of the underage drinking epidemic.
An underage drinking prevention program featuring "confessions from Idaho teens" will be held at 6:30 p.m. today at Moscow Middle School and at 6:30 Wednesday at Grangeville High School.
The presentation will look at how underage drinking can be prevented by breaking down the messages sent by alcohol advertisers. Community members will be taught a new set of skills to prevent underage drinking. The event is relevant for students in grades 5-12 and will include an interactive video, slide presentation, question and answer period and a free photo booth for participants.
