Test your summer alcohol I.Q. and win $10 gift card

July 16, 2015  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources

Now that warmer days are here, there are plenty of opportunities for picnics, barbeques and other summer celebrations. Sometimes, this includes enjoying an alcoholic beverage or two.

In the United States, a “standard” drink is any drink that contains about 14 grams of “pure” alcohol. However, even with the best intentions, making responsible decisions about alcohol can be a challenge since it’s not always easy to know what is in your drink.

Take the Summer Alcohol I.Q. Challenge and you might be surprised to learn how much alcohol is actually in your cocktail or that the mixer you use can have an impact on your blood alcohol content level (BAC). The five-question challenge only takes a few minutes to complete. At the end, U-M faculty or staff can enter a drawing for a chance to win one of five $10 Amazon gift cards.

In addition to the Summer Alcohol I.Q. Challenge, the MHealthy Alcohol Management Program provides a number of tips and resources to help you raise your awareness about drinking.
