More Than One-Fourth of Opioid Poisonings Involve Children and Teens: Study
More than one-fourth of opioid poisonings involve children and teens, and they have become increasingly severe in recent years, according to new research.
The U.S. Department of Education is now accepting applications for its Safe Schools/Healthy Students Program, which supports development and implementation of comprehensive, community-wide plans to create safe and drug-free schools and promote healthy childhood development.
Local education agencies (LEAs) and charter schools may apply for funding, which will total $30.9 million this year. Approximately 28 grants of up to $2.25 million will be awarded.
Application deadline is March 4. For more details, see the full grant announcement online.
