Prescription Drug Abuse Training

October 29 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm

The results of a recent community survey conducted in Northeast Iowa showed that very few people are aware that both youth and older adults are abusing prescription drugs. What can we do to help those who struggle? What can we do to prevent this concern? What is happening in our communities on this topic?

These questions and will be answered and discussed during a virtual training on Thursday, October 29 from 5:30 – 6:30 p.m. via Zoom. The training will be facilitated by Kathy Schwartzhoff, CPS with sharing by Colinne McCann and Meg Gelner. It’s important that mentors, parents, guardians, grandparents, educators, counselors, health professionals, and those who work with youth attend by clicking on this link: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/81261085916.
