A free health seminar will be offered Thursday in Astoria and Seaside to help people understand the risks to their health associated with alcohol.

The clinic is offered by the health organization Tualatin Valley Centers, and the group's director Eva Johnson said while most adults can enjoy moderate alcohol use with "few, if any, problems" some can seriously endanger their health by drinking.

She said the clinics to be offered in Astoria at 2911 Marine Drive from noon to 2 p.m. and in Seaside at 783 First Ave. from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. will help those individuals who may be at risk from alcohol to know what their limits are.

The event is part of National Alcohol Screening Day and will include a presentation on alcohol problems, a written self-test and private meetings with health professionals.

"Through education, awareness and understanding, individuals can make informed decisions about their drinking behaviors," Johnson said.
