Why the Courage to Speak Foundation was Selected to Present at the National Rx Drug Abuse Summit

The Courage to Speak Presentation inspires students, parents, educators and others to find healthy solutions in their schools and communities. With experts in the field, the Courage to Speak Foundation developed distinctive drug prevention education curricula for elementary, middle and high school taught by classroom teachers, Courageous Parenting 101® for parents and other proven drug prevention resources for students, teachers, parents, schools and communities. Ms. Katz is also the author of Sunny’s Story, the critically acclaimed book on drug abuse told from the family beagle’s perspective and read in libraries, schools and homes nationwide.
