Format: Webinar

​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.
