Safe Spring Break at TAMUG
TAMUG partnered with us for another successful Safe Spring Break event. We shared information about the dangers of drinking and driving as well as the harms of binge drinking. Thank you to TAMUG for partnering with our Coalition!
On March 29, Dr. Thomas McLellan, former Deputy Director of the Office of National Drug Control Policy, gave an excellent talk on findings from the Surgeon General's Report, Facing Addiction. His lecture was followed by our annual Town Hall meeting, highlighting the partnerships that help us make a difference in the community. Thanks to everyone who helped make this event a success!

We partnered with Prevention Resource Center Region 6 to place a billboard on I-45S just south of FM 519. It's a digital billboard. Keep an eye out for it! Thank you to the PRC for this opportunity to spread the message that Underage Drinking will not be tolerated in Galveston County!
