  • Brian Marquis, BS Public Liaison Officer at National Institutes of Health/NIDA, Bethesda, MD

2016 marks the 6th Annual National Drug and Alcohol Facts Week, a health observance created by the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) to deliver the scientific facts to youth about the effects and consequences of drug abuse on the brain, body, and behavior. More than 1,500 educational events and activities were held in 2015 by high schools, community centers, juvenile justice systems, treatment centers, prevention programs, and other organizations across the country to shatter the myths about drugs and addiction. This webinar will give participants the opportunity to learn how to organize an event for National Drug and Alcohol Facts Week and how easy it is to utilize NIDAs free materials, such as Drugs: Shatter the Myths booklet and the National Drug IQ Challenge.
