The greatest incidence of trauma injury and death occurs between the ages of 15 and 24. One way to help reverse this trend is to educate young adults on how the decisions they make today can affect everyone around them for many years. Monroe Clinic and Hospital Foundation is sponsoring the Prevent Alcohol and Risk-Related Trauma in Youth (PARTY) student and public programs on Wednesday, Sept. 24, at the Monroe High School Performing Arts Center, 1600 26th St. Attendees will learn about the consequences of poor decision-making -- while being empowered to make informed, safe choices. High school students from nearby school districts will attend a daytime showing of the PARTY program. This 60-minute dramatization features student actors, Monroe Clinic doctors and nurses, and emergency crews. The program will conclude with an excerpt from a Green County judge and the personal stories of individuals directly affected by their own choices or the choices of others related to alcohol and driving while under the influence. The community is invited to a special evening event from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. at Monroe High School. A panel of experts comprised will share their perspective, answer questions from the audience, and provide some tools to help parents or peers start a conversation about making choices.
