Register today for a webinar on the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, National Institutes of Health, National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) initiatives, including PEERx and National Drug Fact Chat Week, and other Federal resources to help prevent youth and teen drug use and abuse. This webinar is sponsored by the U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Safe and Healthy Students.
When: March 27, 2013, 2-3:30 p.m. ET
Who will be presenting: Arlene Remick, Senior Interactive Communications Manager, IQ Solutions
Brian Marquis, Public Liaison Officer, NIDA
Why: Drug abuse has serious consequences in schools, homes, and communities. Although drug use among America’s youth has declined in recent years, far too many young people continue to use these harmful substances. Results of the 2012 Monitoring the Future Survey show that the proportion of 8th- 12th grade students indicating any use of an illicit drug in the 12 months prior to the survey were 49 percent. This webinar will discuss tools and Federal resources to address youth drug use and abuse.
What: Arlene Remick will introduce the redesigned NIDA for teens web site and discuss various drug prevention resources for students, administrators, teachers, and parents. Brian Marquis will talk about the growth and development of National Drug Fact Chat Week and some of the events organizations have conducted as part of National Drug Fact Chat Week.
