Red Watch Band

The Red Watch Band Program is in its fifth year at the University of Iowa. Over 2,600 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.

Check back in the fall for session dates and registration information. There will be 15 sessions available on various days and times.
