NIAAA to Host Twitter Chat on Holiday Drinking


The National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) will be hosting a Twitter Chat, “Alcohol & the Holidays: What You Need to Know.” The chat will cover tips for celebrating the season safely if you choose to drink, vital stats about drunk driving, and evidence-based advice for those thinking about reducing their drinking in the New Year. The chat will also explore the after-effects of a night of overconsumption (apart from those professionally damaging dance moves at the office holiday party), as well as the intriguing “holiday heart” phenomenon.

When: December 12, 2013, at 3 p.m. ET

Co-host: The National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence (NCADD) will join as the official co-host of this chat.

Scientific Expert: Dr. Aaron White, Ph.D., whose research expertise includes alcohol-related black-outs, binge drinking, and underage drinking prevention.   

Hashtag: #NIAAAChat

So please join us on December 12th for our inaugural Twitter Chat and get your questions ready for our expert.
