Red Watch Band

The Red Watch Band Program is in its fifth year at the University of Iowa. The training program focuses on 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.  For more information click here.

Health Ninjas:
