Participants take part in a hands-on, interactive discussion about alcohol serving sizes, as well as the alcohol content of different beverages. They learn how alcohol affects the body and how much time sobering up takes. BAC (Blood Alcohol Level) is explained, along with how to calculate it and why it is important to know. Participants will also explore how more is not necessarily better and when drinking is the most risky and what can be done to reduce risk.
