Alcohol Poisoning

“I had shots that night. I’ve never been that drunk before. I usually drink beer. The nurse at the hospital told me I could have died that night.”

Female Purdue Student

Purdue Medical Amnesty Policy

“We don’t want [students] to be afraid if they have a friend in need. They don’t have to be afraid of the University saying anything.”

Danita Brown, Dean of Students

Indiana Lifeline Law

“This [Lifeline Law] tells young adults that our priority is to get professional medical attention to those who need it, no matter what. It will remove the disincentives currently in place and encourage Hoosiers to seek medical assistance for those who need it.”

Brett Highley, Former Purdue University Student Body President
