My name is Yvonne Urbina and I’m an intern in NIDA’s Public Information and Liaison Branch. I attend New Mexico State University, and I’m thrilled to be here during such an exciting time. As you may already know, National Drug Facts Week (NDFW) is right around the corner—January 27 to February 2, 2014. Although we’ve been busy organizing this awesome event, I thought I would fill you in a little on how you can get involved!

National Drug Facts Week is an opportunity for teens to ask questions and get answers about drugs and drug abuse. If you haven’t already done so, make sure to visit the NDFW Web site to check out all the cool events that are going to take place all over the country.

Don’t see your city? No problem! Talk to your teachers, counselors, classmates, and friends about getting your city on the map. There’s still plenty of time to brainstorm ideas for an event, and getting involved is simple.

So tell us...why are YOU shattering the myths? Print this sign (PDF), fill it out, and share on Facebook and Twitter using #drugfacts. Stay tuned to Twitter and Facebook to see if we share your picture!

Thank you for the ideas and information! We are brainstorming with our coalition and community to come up with a way to promote NDFW!
If you take drugs you'll be sorry peoples.
If you are a drug addict, you are dead before you die.
