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.

Due to COVID-19, all spring 2020 Red Watch Band sessions after March 13th, have been canceled. Please check back in the fall!
