March comes in like a Lion!

Wow, Life has been pretty awesome for the 4SC this month. We battled the increase of the purchase age of tobacco to be raised to 21! On the same evening we were fighting the good fight about BIG Tobacco and Social Access to tobacco, we reported to the School Committee about the implementation of SBIRT,(Screening, Brief Intervention, Referral to Treatment). Such a wonderful experience and such support from the School Committee! Starting in the next school year all 8th/9th graders will be screened for substance use risk! This will allow us to help young people at an earlier age and support their efforts to live healthy lives. I want to thank Jordana Harper for her support, The Greenfield Board of Health and Nicole Zabko! Thanks Youth for Change for your awesome presentation/speech! Onward and Upward for Substance Abuse Prevention in Greenfield!!!
