Other Information Campaigns and PSAs

Multiple education campaigns geared at reducing underage drinking, nicotine use, marijuana use, and prescription drug misuse are promoted throughout the three-county area throughout the year. The goal/purpose of the campaigns are to educate the general public about these important topics and encourage action or change in behavior. Throughout the campaigns the community is saturated with messages on billboards, radio/online music streaming, social media, newspaper ads, banners and mailings.
