We are proud to report that Parent Action on Drugs was one of very few community organizations to be selected to present at the prestigious first National Conference, hosted by the Canadian Centre on Substance Abuse. “Issues of Substance” was from November 13 to 16 in Markham, Ontario and its theme was Innovation and Action.
Pat Sanagan, PAD’s Health Promotion and Education Consultant, was part of an expert panel for Youth and Young Adults: Understanding and Influencing their Choices in Substance Use and Risk Behaviours. She was joined by panellists from the Alberta Alcohol and Drug Abuse Commission and the Addictions Foundation of Manitoba. And it was one of the six (out of 36 workshops) to have simultaneous translation available!
