Get Involved in National Drug Facts Week
January 28–February 3, 2013
National Drug Facts Week (NDFW) is an opportunity for teens to interact with scientists and other experts about drug abuse. Help teens shatter the myths about drugs by hosting and promoting an event during the week of January 28 to February 3, 2013. To help you, the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) provides a toolkit with step-by-step suggestions for planning and promoting your event.
Register your event today and help provide our Nation's youth with the facts they need to succeed and make healthy decisions. By registering, you will have access to NIDA staff who can offer advice about successful events and information on how to get free NIDA materials designed for teens. Be a part of this health observance! NDFW offers teens essential, science-based information about drug abuse and addiction!
