Teens and Alcohol

"In an effort to bring greater public awareness to the issue of underage drinking, George Mason University, in conjunction with Fairfax County (VA) Public Schools, hosted a Town Hall meeting entitled Teens and Alcohol: Promoting Dialogue on Underage Drinking.

The session, moderated by Frank Sesno, George Mason University Professor of Public Policy and Communications and CNN correspondent, engaged high school students; their parents; and a panel of students (including those in recovery), a judge, a doctor, in a discussion about the legal consequences and liability concerns, brain health considerations, and overdose and negative consequences associated with underage drinking."
