Northwest taskforce to host town hall about underage drinking

Local residents have an opportunity to discuss trends in underage drinking and ways to address it when Maryville Partners in Prevention (MVPIP), a coalition of substance abuse and wellness personnel from Northwest Missouri State University, in cooperation with the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, host a town hall meeting.

The meeting is 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesday, April 29, at the Maryville Community Center. Residents interested in attending should RSVP by April 22 to Rebecca Maier, a MVPIP member who also serves as residential life coordinator for upper class and special populations at Northwest, at

“The goal for the evening is to give all residents an opportunity to learn about MVPIP, the resources we have to offer, and discuss issues they are seeing in the community pertaining to high-risk behavior and underage drinking,” Maier said. “We’ll begin identifying steps we can take through a community approach to address such issues.”

MVPIP, formerly known as the Substance Abuse Task Force, aims to create a healthy culture and environment on the Northwest campus and in the Maryville community that encourages responsible decision making.
