Register Today: A Vital Conversation on the Opioid Epidemic for Your Students
Brought to you by Discovery Education and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), Operation Prevention aims to combat the opioid epidemic by educating students about the impacts of prescription opioid misuse and heroin use through engaging, standards-aligned digital content.
Register today and tune in LIVE on Wednesday, October 25th at 1pm/10am PT for the second installment of the Operation Prevention virtual field trip series. Students will visit Huntington, West Virginia- a typical American community that has been greatly impacted by the opioid epidemic- to hear the powerful personal stories from the bravest teens and change makers in the city. Students will learn how opioids have affected their lives, how they are using their experiences to improve the city, and ways your students could make a positive impact in their own communities.
