Temple VA offering free Alcohol Awareness Month Program April 27, 2011
April is Alcohol Awareness Month, and the Central Texas Veterans Health Care System (CTVHCS) is sponsoring a free Wellness Lunch’n Learn program to share information about the importance of limiting alcohol consumption to help prevent health problems. The Lunch’n Learn is set for noon Wednesday, April 27 in the Amphitheater at the Olin E. Teague Veterans’ Medical Center in Temple. All Veterans and the public are invited.
Statistics show heavy alcohol drinkers have a higher risk of liver disease, depression and elevated triglycerides which can lead to pancreatitis. And that’s only some of the risks.
If you are an alcohol drinker, studies show you need to limit your alcohol consumption by drinking alcohol in moderation and avoid binge drinking. But, do you know what does drinking in moderation means? And what is binge drinking? Come and learn about drinking in moderation, binge drinking and even who should not drink alcohol.
The Olin E. Teague Veterans Medical Center is located at 1901 Veterans Memorial Drive in Temple.
