WSU to Host Alcohol Awareness ActivitiesOGDEN, Utah – Comedian Bernie McGrenahan will visit Weber State University April 6 at noon in the Shepherd Union Ballroom B in conjunction with National Alcohol Screening Day.
McGrenahan has been hailed by the Los Angeles Daily News as “the most important comedian in the country today.” His unique style addresses drinking issues that affect high school and college students, using humor to encourage a healthier and more productive way of life.
McGrenahan’s presentation, which is free to the public, is one of several activities planned to heighten awareness of alcohol-related issues on college campuses.
Information will be available throughout the day on alcohol’s effects on the body and mind, risks associated with excessive alcohol use and strategies for responsible drinking. From 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. in Shepherd Union 338-340, students will be able to speak one-on-one with a mental health professional, as well as receive a brief alcohol screening test. Members of the campus community interested in learning more about alcohol, understanding their own alcohol use or helping loved ones with their alcohol use, are invited to attend.
The events are sponsored by the Counseling & Psychological Services Center and the Health Education/Drug & Alcohol Program.
