JSI's Community Health Institute (CHI) provided assessment and evaluation services, training, technical assistance, data analysis, and data profiles for a catchment area of 23 towns in New Hampshire. The project framework assisted communities in reviewing local data, determining local factors that were contributing to high rates of youth alcohol use and binge drinking, and helped communities select and implement culturally appropriate evidence-based strategies to prevent and reduce alcohol use and abuse among 12 to 17 year olds.
