From the Community Anti-Drug Coalitions of America:
Excessive alcohol use negatively impacts our society in a myriad of ways. Alcohol misuse and alcoholism causes major damage at the individual, family and community levels. Nearly 88,000 people die from alcohol-related causes annually and alcohol misuse costs the U.S. an estimated $259 billion. Thanks to research funded by the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA), we know more about alcohol and its impacts than ever before. Now is the time for advocates to demonstrate their social media acumen and raise awareness on this critical issue.
This is why CADCA and NIAAA teamed up to launch a social media contest. The idea of keeping information bite-sized or “snackable” to quickly understand and share with others is already a widely accepted marketing and communications strategy. So we asked coalitions to share NIAAA’s facts with the masses in this exciting way.
