You're invited to participate in the National Substance Abuse Prevention Month Twitter chat on Tuesday, October 14, 2014 at 7:00 p.m. ET to discuss substance abuse prevention among youth.
Please join David Mineta, the Office of National Drug Control Policy’s Deputy Director of Demand Reduction, Ritankar Das, Chair of the Science & Engineering Festival (USASEF) Youth Advisory Board; Jack Andraka USASEF Youth Advisory Board Member, and young leaders from the National Youth Leadership Institute.
