Journalism and Public Relations Professor Erick Lauber, director of Community
Health and Leadership with MARTI, recently presented at the West
Shamokin teacher in-service training on Columbus Day.
Designed as an
interactive and informative parent-to-parent workshop, the session featured
local Pennsylvania Youth Survey data from Armstrong and Indiana county as well information from
the National Institute on Drug Abuse, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health
Services Administration, and the Drug Enforcement Agency.
Lauber has also presented over a dozen parent-to-parent
workshops over the past year in multiple school districts across the two
counties. Funded by a Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency grant, the workshops are also available to
PTA, Booster, or church groups, and are offered as a free lunch-and-learn to
businesses in the two counties. Contact Lauber at firstname.lastname@example.org for more
