Date Safe Presentation in Amherst on August 29
“Safer Choices” is targeted for youth and their parents in grades 7-12. This program is open to anyone in the area and is presented free of charge.
“Parents, educators, and community members throughout the country and from all walks of life (cultural, faith, socio-economic) have praised this educational program for creating meaningful change in students’ ability to make better, safer choices in their lives and in the lives of their peers,” said Jenny Blenker, RN, SANE program manager at Ascension St. Michael’s Hospital.
