RCC will participate with more than 250 colleges nationwide to hold National Alcohol Screening Day 2010. National Alcohol Screening Day® (NASD) is an annual event that provides information about alcohol and health as well as free, anonymous screening for alcohol use problems. The program is designed to provide outreach, screening and education about alcohol’s effects on health. As part of the program, attendees have the opportunity to complete a brief questionnaire evaluating their alcohol use and talk privately with a health professional about their results and next steps. The first 100 students to participate will receive a FREE slice of pizza and a chance to win a $25.00 gift card to the Campus bookstore.

 

The event is sponsored by RCC's Prevention Services, Student Development Division, in collaboration with RCC's Psychiatric Nursing students. Estelle Yahes, Professor of Nursing, said, "Our Nursing students have the knowledge and skills related to substance abuse and apply them to the screening day."

 

Since 2000, more than 1,250 RCC students have participated in the screening day.
