Every 15 Minutes

St. Joseph Health - Sonoma County is one of many organizations that sponsor “Every 15 Minutes,” the anti-drunk driving campaign where fatal accidents are simulated before hundreds of high school students. The program was born in the early 1990’s when statistics showed a teenager was killed every 15 minutes in the United States as a result of an alcohol-related car crash.
