BE AWARE - BE SAFE - DON'T DRINK AND DRIVE!
At this holiday time of year, it's a good idea to review how quickly drinking alcohol can impair us. The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign has teamed up with The Century Council to produce "The Blood Alcohol Educator". This simple program can help you learn how gender, body weight, food, and what, how much, and how fast you drink
can affect your Blood Alcohol Concentration.
