The video and presentation slides from the March session of CDC’s Public Health Grand Rounds, “Preventing Excessive Alcohol Use: What Public Health Can Do” held on Tuesday, March 20th are available at http://www.cdc.gov/about/
This session explored the public health impact of excessive alcohol use and evidence-based strategies to prevent it, with specific attention to the role that state and local public health agencies can play in addressing this important public health problem.
Continuing Education for Grand Rounds is available.
ALL Continuing Education hours for PHGR are issued online through the CDC/ATSDR Training & Continuing Education Online system, http://www2a.cdc.gov/TCEOnline
. If you have questions, call Learner Support at 1-800-418-7246 (1-800-41TRAIN), or firstname.lastname@example.org.
