News: Unhealthy Alcohol Use

April 21, 2016

One of Polk County’s Community Health Improvement Initiatives is to delay the onset of youth starting to drink before they are of legal age. In the 2011 Polk County Youth Risk Behavior Survey 24% of boys and 16% of girls reported having had their first drink of alcohol before age 13 (other than a few sips). This public service announcement was created after focus groups were held throughout Polk County talking with youth about underage alcohol use. What they said was…. what their parents say matters…have that conversation with them about not using alcohol underage! Click below to watch the video.
