Manchester students create health campaign focusing on alcohol use

Manchester University’s Advanced Public Relations class has created a health campaign called #Don’tBeIt that is intended to educate the Manchester community about misconceptions surrounding alcohol use. 

They would like to invite the North Manchester community to their main event from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 23. The location has moved to the upper level of the Jo Young Switzer Center.

As the class members researched the biggest health concerns for college students, alcohol misuse and abuse was at the top of the list. They found that if these concerns remain unchecked, those problems often continued later in life.

The event will include activities intended to teach proper portion sizes and ways to understand how much money is spent on alcohol. There will also be face painting, food and live music from Fog Delay, a band from Columbia City, Ind. 

This event is part of the Values, Ideas and the Arts program at Manchester University. 

Students organizing the campaign are David Alvarez, Tiffany Byers, Katie Doehrmann, Tanner Edge, Max Etter, Karoline Flower, Nizhoni Rhoads and Courtney Zentz under the direction of Dr. Gabriela Morales, assistant professor of health communication.
