SERIES DESCRIPTION

Underage alcohol use remains an ongoing challenge facing prevention professionals. Rates of use have generally been in decline for many years; however, alcohol remains the most used substance among youth. It is still unclear the extent that the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted underage alcohol use, although it is known that the pandemic has accelerated the social and behavioral conditions that make use more likely to occur. This two-part webinar series will provide an overview of the current state of underage drinking and related prevention efforts, with an additional focus on two particular age groups of concern: younger youth (ages 13 and under) and college-aged underage drinkers (ages 18 to 20).

COURSE DESCRIPTION

This webinar will provide a broad overview of the current state of underage drinking and related prevention efforts. It will begin with a review of the most common data sources on underage alcohol consumption and discuss opportunities to improve and expand data collection. The webinar will summarize the most recent data on alcohol use prevalence and patterns, as well as the consequences of use. It will also discuss the research on risk and protective factors for use, including what is known about the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. Finally, it will provide a discussion on how the social determinants of health impact underage alcohol use rates.
