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.
