Drug and alcohol abuse crimes are on the rise. How is this impacting our White Mountain communities?
Lynn Browne-Wagner, an adjunct faculty member at Northland Pioneer College and an information specialist with Banner Good Samaritan’s statewide Poison and Drug Information Center, will share her observations during a free public presentation on Wednesday, January 23, from 2 to 4 p.m., in the Ponderosa Center Symposium Room on NPC’s Show Low Campus, 1001 W. Deuce of Clubs.
The presentation is part of NPC’s participation in National Drug & Alcohol Facts Week, January 22 to 25, to help raise awareness of the problems created by drug or alcohol abuse.
Browne-Wagner has helped trained over 50 percent of the state’s paramedics, is a registered nurse and former flight nurse, and has contributed to or edited many of the textbooks used to train emergency medical personnel. She currently serves on the Timber Mesa Fire & Medical District’s board, providing an emergency medical prospective to operations.
For additional information about the presentation or the local observance of Drug & Alcohol Facts Week, contact NPC’s Nursing Department, 532-6136.
Parking for the Ponderosa Center can be more easily reached from campus entrances on W. Whipple. The Ponderosa Center is located at the far west end of the campus.
