THY Leader Develops Infographics to Discourage Impaired Driving

2018

In 2018, Adelynn Helms, President of Teens for Healthy Youth (THY) at Bluffton High and youth representative on the LowCountry Alliance for Healthy Youth Board, created two infographics to discourage drunk, drugged, and distracted driving during the Winter Holiday Season and Summer Break.  These infographics were featured in local newspapers and magazines. The holiday message was also attached to candy canes and passed out by Teens for Healthy Youth Members to shoppers at Tanger Outlet and to students at Bluffton High School.  This message is especially important in South Carolina which ranks third in the nation for drunk driving.   Annually, LCAHY updates its Winter and Summer Impaired Driving Campaign and continues to educate the community on the risks posed by drunk, drugged, and distracted driving through local media, e-news alerts, and the coalition website. This is significant because the coalition was formed in response to numerous alcohol-related tragedies involving youth in the communities of Bluffton and Hilton Head Island.
