Community coalitions can reduce density of alcohol outlets

A new report in Preventing Chronic Disease by CHW writer David Jernigan and his colleagues examines the role of community coalitions in reducing the density of alcohol outlets.  They conclude that “public health agencies have a vital and necessary role to play in efforts to reduce alcohol outlet density. They are often unaware of the potential of this strategy and have strong potential partners in the thousands of community coalitions nationwide that are focused on reducing alcohol-related problems.”
