Red Ribbon Anti-Drug Lecture with Dr. Matt Bellace
Red Ribbon Week 2012 is coming. That's the 24-year national campaign designed to raise awareness and help communities unite and take a visible stand against alcohol and drug abuse.
Bellace will present his lecture "Resilience, The Power to Rise Above, Empowering Teens to Make Positive Choices."
This event will be held Wednesday, Oct. 24 at 7 p.m., in the Parsippany Hills High School Auditorium, 20 Rita Drive. Admission is free.
“Especially given the tragic losses our community has suffered in the past few months related to drug addiction, MAC is driven more than ever to raise awareness about drug abuse and prevention in Parsippany,” said MAC Chair Annelise Catanzaro. “We’re looking forward to sponsoring Dr. Bellace’s program in pursuit of this goal.”
In addition to the free program for the community-at-large, Parsippany’s MAC will also sponsor school-wide assemblies at both Parsippany Hills and Parsippany high schools during Red Ribbon Week.
Funding for Parsippany’s Municipal Alliance programs is provided through the Governor’s Council on Alcoholism and Drug Abuse as well as the Township of Parsippany-Troy Hills.
