The panel of guests will discuss the current drug epidemic and its effect on school-aged kids. Guests for the evening include:

The presentation is centered around a teenager’s bedroom that is set up as part of the event to allow parents, grandparents, caregivers, teachers and other adults to explore a mock teenager’s bedroom to see and identify drug paraphernalia and hiding places along with other signs that may indicate alcohol or other drug use by a teen.

When: February 22
Time: 6:00 - 7:30
