Emergency Physicians Warn That Risky Drinking Can Increase Your Risk of an ER Visit

From an ACEP press release:

As part of Alcohol Awareness Month in April, the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) and the Emergency Nurses Association (ENA) have launched a campaign to educate occasional drinkers about how much is too much alcohol consumption and why it may put them at a higher risk of a trip to the emergency department.

Funded by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the Risky Drinking Campaign hopes to keep people from driving after drinking and increase awareness about how much is too much alcohol. ACEP emergency physicians are available in 21 communities across the country to comment on the campaign and to talk about the consequences of risky drinking. Additional information about the campaign also is available at
