Rise and Thrive – Better Together: Leveraging Campus-Community Partnerships to Address Alcohol Harms
Dec 8 @ 1:30 pm – 3:00 pm

Alcohol is the most commonly misused substance among college students and its related harms can negatively impact both the campus and community.

This panel will explore environmental prevention strategies for addressing alcohol misuse and highlight three collaborative efforts to reduce alcohol harms within their campus and community.

The Ohio College Initiative will host a series of webinars through September of 2022, in collaboration with the Rise and Thrive Campus-Community Partnerships.
