TFJCK receives American Medical Association grant for $8,000

Together For Jackson County Kids has received $8,000 from the AMA (American Medical Association) Foundation for prescription drug abuse prevention, education, and awareness. We will be using this money to start a Prescription Drug Abuse Prevention Task Force in Jackson County. We will train youth and adult facilitators in the Good Drugs Gone Bad program, launch an aggressive media campaign to raise awareness of Rx (prescription) and OTC (over-the-counter) drug abuse, and host a community forum that focuses on Rx and OTC drug abuse. We will keep you posted as this project progresses. Please let me know if you are interested in being on this new task force.
