The Red Watch Band Program is in its eighth year at the University of Iowa. Over 4,000 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.

All sessions will take place in meeting rooms 1A&B at the CRWC, unless otherwise noted. If you are interested in being put on a waitlist for any of the Red Watch Band classes, please contact Abbey Berkebile at with the dates you are interested in attending
