Drug Awareness Prevention
- Drug Awareness Prevention
- 1/30/2020, 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM
- Mark R. Isfeld Multi-purpose room.
The Mark Isfeld PAC is committed to bringing better awareness and support to parents and youth in the valley in recognition that a need exists for the community as a whole when it comes to drug prevention and education.
This presentation will be the first in a series of events planned for the upcoming year from the PAC Drug Awareness Subcommittee and will focus on what drugs are currently impacting our youth here in the Comox Valley, as parents how to identify these drugs along with indicators of use, and what is available locally for support should the need ever arise.
We are fortunate to have dedicated representatives from the RCMP (Paul Jones), and the John Howard Society (Angie Prescott) who will share their knowledge and expertise on these topics. In recognition of the commitment from the school district to address youth vaping, we also felt it was timely to look at nicotine addiction so we are excited to have a representative from VIHA (Scott Riddell) come join the discussion as well.
This event is being held on Thursday, Jan 30th from 7:00 - 9:00pm (doors open at 6:30) at the Mark Isfeld Multipurpose Room and is open to all adults and youth in SD71.
