It’s National #DrugFacts Week!

This week is National Drug Facts Week, “a national health observance for teens to promote local events that use NIDA science to shatter the myths about drugs.” Be sure to check out the dedicated website to find events in your area, take the National Dug IQ Challenge, and find out how different drugs affect the brain and body.

There’s also a Chat Day on Friday, January 30, which is “an annual live online chat held between high school students and NIDA scientists… Students from around the country ask the questions they most want the answers to about drugs and drug abuse, including drug effects, how to help friends or family that are abusing drugs, and what causes addiction.” Transcripts for previous years’ chats are available online.

And speaking of awareness, our own Brain Awareness Week (BAW) is coming up fast! March 16-22 find events around the world dedicated to the brain, and help us celebrate 20 years of brain awareness outreach.
