The REAL Alcohol Coalition was created through funding from the U.S. Department of Education Grants for Coalitions to Prevent and Reduce Alcohol Abuse at Institutions of Higher Education.
The statewide coalition focuses on prevention and reduction of alcohol consumption including binge drinking among college-age students at institutions of higher education throughout Texas. The group's vision is to prevent and reduce under-aged and high-risk alcohol abuse through research, education, assessment and leadership.
The institute will feature a performance from Eva Ybarra, the “Queen of the Accordion.” Manuel Medrano will premiere a documentary on Ybarra’s career. Two people receive free admission with a voucher available here.
