Substance Abuse Right Under Your Nose – June 29/30

June 29 @ 8:00 am - June 30 @ 4:30 pm

What is happening in Iowa in the area of substance abuse?  Do you know the current trends?  Can you recognize symbols, clothing, concealment? What moves a student towards substance abuse?  Do you understand the physical affects of the substances?  These questions and many more will be answered as members from the Governor’s Office on Drug Control Policy, Iowa Department of Public Health, Iowa Poison Control Center, Iowa Narcotics Officer’s Association, Department of Criminal Investigation, and the Des Moines Police Department present current trends in substance abuse among our students.  This professional development will also have the “What You Don’t See” mobile training trailer and a visit to the DCI Crime Lab.
