Program On Underage Drinking at GMU Tonight

A 90-minute town-hall style program about underage drinking will be held tonight at the Harris Theater at George Mason University. All public and private school systems in Northern Virginia have been invited.

The 7:30 p.m. program is sponsored by the county school system and GMU. It is designed for high school students, their parents, school faculty members and administrators and will focus on strategies to prevent underage drinking. Among the discussion topics are the legal consequences of drinking, physical effects on the brain and other consequences.
Based on a recent public television program, "America Drinks," the town hall will be moderated by Frank Sesno, GMU professor of public policy and communication and a CNN special correspondent.
Segments of "America Drinks" will be shown during the program and a panel of students -- including those in recovery -- a judge, a doctor and a researcher will participate in an open dialogue and question and answer session.
GMU is at 4400 University Dr., Fairfax. Those attending are asked to use lot K for parking, off of Braddock Road. For more information, call 703-876-5281 or send an email to .
