Twitter chat 1/16 on binge drinking


Join CDC Director, Dr. Tom Frieden for a live Twitter chat about CDC’s new Vital Signs issue on binge drinking. This report shows that binge drinking is a serious, under-recognized problem among women and girls. 1 in 8 women and 1 in 5 high school girls binge drink, increasing their risk of breast cancer, heart disease, STDs, and unintended pregnancy.

Dr. Frieden will be joined by Dr. Bob Brewer, of CDC’s Alcohol Program, to discuss how states, communities, individuals and health providers can work together to implement effective measures, support women in making wise choices and reduce binge drinking and the many harms associated with it. 

 WhenWednesday, January 16, 2:00-3:00PM EST
