Analyzing Greek Members Alcohol Consumption by Gender and the Impact of Alcohol Education Interventions
Brown-Rice, Kathleen A.; Furr, Susan; Jorgensen, Maribeth
Journal of Alcohol and Drug Education, v59 n1 p19-38 Apr 2015
Members of the Greek community have been found to engage in riskier alcohol drinking behaviors and have higher alcohol- related negative consequences. A sample of Greek members were surveyed in Spring of 2013 (n = 372). It was found that The Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test-Consumption (AUDIT-C) scores were significantly higher for male respondents than female respondents. During the fall semester, alcohol education sessions were offered to all members of the Greek community. Of the respondents who attended alcohol education sessions (n = 334), 55% reported these sessions changed their perception of high risk drinking. Implications for alcohol education programming are discussed.
