Keynote Presentation for NCAAW
Monday night, September 24th, 8:00 p.m., Emerson Suites

Look past the dramatic headlines and exaggerated stereotypes about drunken students. The truth is that most college students are making healthy decisions about alcohol, sex, and other important choices. The question is, “Are You?”

“The Real Buzz” is delivered in a way that is extremely funny, and powerfully challenging. Using humor, storytelling and positive health promotion, David Hellstrom presents “The Real Buzz” in an engaging manner that avoids the scare tactics and dry facts and figures. Instead, he talks to students about issues that really impact their lives: relationships, self-esteem, a great social life, and feeling like they are in charge of their own lives. David challenges students to get what they want out of life by making choices that return them positive results, without putting themselves or their friends at risk.
