    Alcohol & Athletes: A Scientific Look at the Impact of Alcohol Use on an Athlete
    In the wake of national news involving college athletes and high-risk behaviors, information surrounding the real-life experience within collegiate sports is hazy. College athletes drink at higher rates than their non-athlete counterparts do. College and universities are dealing with underage drinking daily, but drinking amongst athletes presents specific problems - not just problems with the use of alcohol and dependence, but also problems with their performance as an athlete. This National Electronic Seminar will focus on examining the impact of alcohol use on the college athlete. The speaker, John Underwood, will provide specific science-based information on the impact of alcohol use on the college athlete.
    Group discussed possibility of having moderators and bringing the archived version to teams, as it is offered during team practice hours.
    Thursday, December 14, 2006 2:00 - 3:15 p.m.; Res. Life Office
    Underage Drinking in Native American Communities
    Underage drinking is a pervasive problem within many Native American communities and is attributable to a host of health, social, and economic problems that negatively impact the well being of the culture. Learn how Native American communities within various states are taking a stand to prevent underage drinking within the tribal community, foster “wellbriety”, and promote a culture free of alcohol use/abuse
