About the event

  This first Interactive Dialogue offers an opportunity for prevention practitioners to:

  • Learn about and better understand the harms associated with changes in alcohol availability as a result of an unexpected pandemic, including the increasingly blurred line between on and off premises sales;
  • Share emerging changes to alcohol sales that will not only impact alcohol-related harms in the short-term, but have the potential to set dangerous precedents that will damage the three tier system long-term; and 
  • Discuss ways communities can take action to prevent the harms associated with increased access to alcohol. 
  • Discuss ways to ensure that temporary policies do not become permanent.
  • Consider possible data collection to make the case about alcohol related harms.


  • David Jernigan, Ph.D., - Boston University School of Public Health
  • Cassandra Greisen, MPA, Director of Public Policy - National Alcohol Beverage Control Association

Session moderated by:Traci Toomey, Ph.D - University of Minnesota; Co-chair U.S.APA Advisory Board
