Edward P. Ehlinger, Director and Chief Health Officer Boyton Health Service - University of Minnesota Despite numerous legislative and programmatic efforts, alcohol contin- ues to take a huge toll on the physical, mental, and economic health of Minnesotans of all ages. Organizations and communities expend a great deal of time and resources in efforts to reduce the excessive use of alcohol, to prevent the negative consequences linked to alcohol, or to respond to the damage caused to individuals and/or the community by the irre- sponsible use of alcohol. Much research has been done on this issue and many programs and interventions have been implemented with the hope of curtailing this problem. However, the overall rate of high risk drinking has remained at unacceptable levels. This session will review the data on the major approaches that have been tried and critique why they may not have had a significant impact on the overall high-risk drinking rates. With a specific focus on the data highlighting the role that the price of alcohol, the marketing of alcohol, and the linkage of alcohol and sports have in perpet- uating the problems of alcohol in our society, this session will discuss the potential of changing the way we frame the issue of excessive alcohol use from being an issue of adolescents and young adults that needs commu- nity attention to a societal issue that needs a community-wide approach of which adolescents and young adults are a critical component.
