Based on the 2011 Youth Risk Behavior Surveillance System Survey, 34.3 percent of middle and high school students drank alcohol in the past 30 days and 17.6 percent of High School students binge drank in the past 30 days, the abstract notes. This funding will support the ongoing efforts of the North Carolina Preventing Underage Drinking (NCPUD) Initiative to reduce and prevent underage alcohol consumption and the resulting social, health, and economic consequences in the State of North Carolina.
