EAGLE RIDGE INSTITUTE JOINS FORCES WITH CROOKED OAK PUBLIC SCHOOLS TO REDUCE THE USE OF UNDERAGE DRINKING IN THE COMMUNITY
Oklahoma City, OK- Underage drinking is a significant public health concern that affects our youth, communities, and nation. Each year over 5,000 teens ages 16 to 20 Die due to fatal injuries caused by alcohol-related car accidents. About 400,000 drivers age 16 to 20 will be seriously injured. Please join our movement at the Crooked Oak Community Conversation Meeting on May 3rd, 2012 from 5:30 to 6:30pm. Our goal is to educate young people, parents, and others who work with the youth in the Metro OKC area about the dangers associated with the use and abuse of alcohol. A Town Hall Meeting is a great way to mobilize communities around underage drinking prevention. Please join a national movement to educate, advocate, and speak out for underage drinking prevention efforts. It takes all sectors of a community and you, to make the difference in your area. To find out more or to setup a town hall meeting in your area please call 405-840-1359.
