The Red Watch Band Program has been around for over 10 years at the University of Iowa and has trained over 6,000 students. The training program focuses on knowledge, skill, and confidence building regarding preventing death from alcohol overdose. Students are taught the knowledge and skills to "make the call," and using role plays, given opportunities to build confidence to intervene on behalf of another.

Registration is required: https://studentwellness.uiowa.edu/programs/red-watch-band

All students who complete the training will receive CPR, AED and alcohol bystander training, and will be better able to link the impact that alcohol has on the body.

Individuals with disabilities are encouraged to attend all University of Iowa–sponsored events. If you are a person with a disability who requires a reasonable accommodation in order to participate in this program, please contact in advance at
