The Drug-Free All Stars of Angelina County, funded by a grant from TxDOT, are a group of high school seniors that serve as role models for the community by living an alcohol, tobacco, and drug-free life. For their March monthly meeting, the Drug-Free All Stars visited Woodland Heights Medical Center and heard from Tracie Brown, Trauma Program Coordinator for the hospital. Ms. Brown talked to the students about trauma safety, how to care for others during emergencies, and what to do for others who are hurt during these events. She also talked to the students about making safe choices as they head off to college and the effects their decisions can have on others. The Coalition, Inc. appreciates Jennifer Stevens, Director of Marketing, and Tracie Brown for making this meeting possible.
