substance abuse

Major: Sociology

Project: Learning how to respond to overdoses, to then continue teaching others.

Inspiration: I have seen a lot of people around me struggle with substance abuse without adequate care. It is not spoken about enough, especially in minority communities.

Future Plans: I hope to see an open dialogue about substance abuse. I want to see those struggling to receive the help they need.
