The local health unit is raising awareness regarding alcohol abuse.
The ‘Pour Challenge’ held at the Model City Mall in Kapuskasing tested how much alcohol residents are consuming per serving.
Joanne Bennett, a public health nurse in the Porcupine Health Unit was impressed by residents’ restraint when measuring out alcoholic drinks.
Bennett says people showed a solid knowledge of alcohol serving sizes during the challenge.
The health unit’s annual report outlined alcohol abuse and related illnesses prompting events like this one.
The Porcupine Health Unit services communities in Cochrane, Kapuskasing and Hearst.
