The Red Watch Band Program is in its 10th year at the University of Iowa. Almost 6,000 students have been trained so far! The training program focuses on knowledge, skill, and confidence building regarding preventing death from alcohol overdose. Students are taught the knowledge and skills to "make the call," and using role plays, given opportunities to build confidence to intervene on behalf of another. All students who complete the training will receive CPR and alcohol bystander training, and will be better able to link the impact that alcohol has on the body.
There are no sessions over the summer. Check back in mid-August for the fall list of sessions.
