posted on Thu, Nov 20 2014 2:00 pm by The Network for Public Health Law

Thursday, November 20 from 1 – 2:30 p.m. (ET). View/download the slides.

When addressing the health risks related to excessive alcohol use, including underage drinking and binge drinking, policymakers have a number of evidence-based legal options. Policies that impact cost, availability, regulation of marketing, treatment and other factors can be used to address alcohol abuse and its negative consequences. This webinar examines efforts in Minnesota and lessons learned from that state’s approach, and explores how a new law in Washington, which abolishes state control over alcohol, is associated with changes in consumption patterns and other health and social impacts.
