On behalf of the California School Resource Officers’ Association (CSROA), the Stanislaus County Office of Education, City of Modesto Police Department, Stanislaus Behavioral Health and Recovery Services and California State University Stanislaus, hosted 2019 Drug Symposium: From Vaping to Edibles to Opioids on September 19, 2019.
Local and National news media continue to report the negative impact drugs has in our schools and communities. Recent deaths and hospitalizations for vaping and opioids have been widely reported in the media. School administrators continue to struggle with edibles and other marijuana products while trying to keep opioids out of schools and the hands of juveniles. This symposium was developed to share information on research, trends and most importantly, school and community strategies for prevention and intervention.
The partnering agencies and CSROA thanks you for your attendance and further actions to reduce the negative impact drugs have on our community. The following agenda provides links and resources provided by our workshop presenters. Please contact kbarber [ahtsym] stancoe [dhotsym] org (subject: 2019%20Drug%20Symposium) (Kym Barber )(email) or phone: (209) 238-1510 for more information.
