Synthetic drug workshop planned

The Prevention Resource Center for Region 9 has announced its second epidemiological work group for the fiscal year, “Fake Drugs, Real Effects: Synthetic Drugs in Our Community.”

The event is scheduled for 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the Region 18 Education Service Center, 2811 LaForce Blvd., in Midland. Lunch will be served at noon.

Nurses Educating on Illegal Drugs and Synthetics (NEIDS), a group of emergency nurses and nurse educators from Lubbock who use firsthand experience to inform the public of the hazards of synthetic marijuana and other harmful drugs, will be presenters.

Breakout sessions and strategic planning efforts to address synthetic drugs in the area also are planned.
