Substance Abuse Prevention: NEIDS Outreach

Substance Abuse Prevention:  NEIDS Outreach

Important Session Information:

University Medical Center’s Nurses Educating on Illegal Drugs & Synthetics (NEIDS) is an outreach group of registered nurses that believe synthetic marijuana and other illegal drugs kill and harm too many of our fellow human beings.

They are emergency nurses and nurse educators from Lubbock, Texas, whose mission is to provide education to the public on the health risks and hazards of the use of synthetic marijuana and other harmful drugs. They accomplish this by utilizing public service announcements, focused educational offerings to school age children, point of care education, and working with local coalitions and agencies against the use of synthetic marijuana. We actively support new or revised legislation of local and state laws to halt the sale, distribution, and the manufacturing of these synthetic compounds and illegal drugs.

University Medical Center is committed to providing education to our community therefore; UMC NEIDS provides free synthetic and drug related outreach opportunities to any group within the community. They provide education to schools, community organizations, health fairs, and other focus groups. They continue to research and educate people on the hazards of synthetic compounds. The group’s research has been presented at Lubbock Christian University-Scholars Colloquium, UMC Health System-University Medical Center-Nursing Research Poster Competition, TTUHSC/UMC Trauma & Critical Care Symposium, and many other venues.

Join us, at ESC 17, to preview the educational and powerful presentation and find out how you can bring this information to your school.
