The GMR office is happy to announce that Wright State University has been granted an Emerging Health Initiative award in support of their High School Education Day for Substance Abuse Prevention project.

Description – Wright State University librarians, along with faculty and graduate students from the Boonshoft School of Medicine and College of Education and Human Services, will partner with local high schools to deliver substance abuse education and health literacy instruction to the students in six area high schools. A full-day, interactive curriculum will be provided to students on the WSU campus and will use NLM resources to support students in learning how to make healthy choices and be drug free.  Each of the partnership organizations will develop a learning module of instruction to support students in learning about aspects of addiction.

Objectives – The purpose of the High School Education Day for Substance Abuse Prevention project is to have students 1) Gain the discernment to identify credibility of the information via the Wright State University librarian instruction 2) Learn the neurobiology of addiction via the Boonshoft School of Medicine instruction 3) Learn the psychosocial factors related to addiction and the recovery process via the College of Education and Human Services instruction and finally 4) Advocate for healthy, drug-free choices via student groups creating a poster based on the evidence collected and learned from the three modules.
