Thank you for being part of the Join Together community as we celebrate our first anniversary.
I am extraordinarily grateful to be part of this experience. I was a longtime subscriber of the Boston University School of Public Health’s Join Together news service before our collaboration to make it part of the Partnership for Drug-Free Kids in 2011, and always admired their editorial content and advocacy efforts. We strive to uphold this legacy.
Over the past year, we have worked tirelessly to provide you with the top daily drug, alcohol and tobacco addiction prevention and treatment news that affects you and your community, including exclusive expert commentaries and high-quality feature articles. In case you missed any of our top news stories, I invite you to read some here:
While it’s a privilege to provide you with this free resource, we need your help. Knowledge is power and we want to educate individuals nationwide with our vital information. Please invite your friends, family, teachers, coaches, clergy members and anyone or group you think would benefit to sign up for our Join Together Daily or Weekly eNewsletter at drugfree.org/enewsletters.
Help us enhance and expand Join Together services and reinstate the Treatment Research Bulletin and Continuing Education Program by choosing to make a gift of $15, $20, $30 or more.
I hope you will consider getting involved today, and stay with us and thousands more to celebrate Join Together’s second anniversary in 2013.
