Midmorning: Kerry Kennedy and teen drinking

Posted at 7:02 AM on February 6, 2007 by Bill Wareham

Kerri Miller's 9 a.m. guest Kerry Kennedy was born to privilege and power, but her up-bringing stressed experiencing how others lived. Now Kennedy spends her life campaigning for better human rights. She is the daughter of Robert and Ethel Kennedy and the author of Speak Truth to Power.

At 10 a.m., Midmorning examines whether or not testing for alcohol in high schools would deter underage drinking. Kerri's guests are Rodney Skager, professor emeritus at UCLA's school of education and information studies and director of the California Survey of secondary students and drug and alcohol use; Marsha Rosenbaum, director of the Safety First Project and director of the San Francisco office of the Drug Policy Alliance; and Aaron White, a biological psychologist and professor in the department of psychiatry at Duke University Medical Center.
