Our last session is one not to be missed! Come check out a program called “Keeping Current” presented by Alex Batshchelet and Brenda Shiflet from Dare County Health and Human Services. They will walk us through a mock teenage bedroom educating us on signs of substance abuse and risk factors to be aware of with youth today. All of the presentations will be informative and engaging. A Health Education Section meeting will take place and will provide a great networking opportunity for health educators across the region.
