LCAHY Promotes Two National Health Campaigns: Brain Awareness Week and Heart Healthy Month

During February American Heart Month, the Lowcountry Alliance for Healthy Youth (LCAHY) developed an E-News to create awareness for American Heart Month. LCAHY’s E-news included information on the effects of drugs on adolescent heart health and connected use of alcohol, tobacco, and drugs to premature heart problems.
