This webinar provides an overview of the Alcohol Awareness
Strategy developed by Carleton University and will specifically touch on what
the strategy includes and what it will aim to achieve over the next four
years. Jason LeMar will facilitate the presentation as it outlines the
foundational work that has been done in recent years on alcohol within the
realm of public health and how that work has influenced Carleton’s
Strategy. Finally, the presentation will introduce recent efforts at the
post-secondary level which have the aim of generating broader support for a
more deliberate public health program that will foster and promote safer
drinking practices at universities across the country.
