LCAHY Hosts First Face-to-Face Meeting Since COVID
LowCountry Alliance for Healthy Youth (LCAHY) hosted its first face-to-face board meeting since COVID with the option for members to join via Zoom. LCAHY celebrated its accomplishments during the year and thanked board members for their support. They applauded LCAHY’s youth coalition, Teens for Healthy Youth (THY), for their efforts to promote positive teen health throughout the year and during COVID-19. LCAHY board members and THY worked on identifying interventions for reducing youth access to marijuana and decreasing approval of youth use of marijuana. THY representatives stressed the importance of peer-to-peer education and utilization of the Prevention Plus Wellness Program with their peers. LCAHY looks forward to having more opportunities for face-to-face meetings and will begin working on plans to reapply for the second five-year cycle of the DFC grant.
