Monday we met with our preceptors at Project Lazarus. At the meeting, we learned a lot of new information about Project Lazarus. Project Lazarus is a program which focuses on overdose prevention in rural communities. We also learned that Project Lazarus not only focuses on prescription drug abuse but illicit drug use as well. There is a lot more information to be learned about this project and I look forward to working with them. This is going to be a fun and exciting time spent raising awareness about this initiative through becoming involved with the community.

On Tuesday, August 19, we attended our first event for Team TAP(Teens as Parents).  We not only met our preceptor but also some of the parents that are involved in the group.  We had the opportunity to attend the Back-To-School night program and to get to know the parents.

Active Routes to School- also known as Team ARTS, met for the first time as a group to discuss the how students can safely arrive to school using active measures rather than the assumed method of riding the school bus. We are under the guidance of the Region 6 Active Routes to School Program Coordinator, Rebekah West.  Rebekah is a Campbell University Alumni and was in the charter MSPH class.  She has been doing great things across her 10 county region and we are very fortunate to be working in partnership with her on this project. 
So now you’re probably thinking of where you grew up and if it would have been feasible to actually walk to school.  Many of you may answer this with a simple “No” due to distance lived from the school, safety concerns, etc.  Our job is to think outside the box and make it possible for all students to pursue this active route if they desire.  Follow over the next few weeks and months as we show you how not only is it possible but also the positive impacts it has on the overall health of our youth.
This active initiative is not just a local endeavor. ARTS is in conjunction with the North Carolina Safe Routes to School Project and supported by the NC Dept. of Transportation and the NC Division of Public Health.
