Wellness Program Lecture

On Wednesday, November 6th, we had the second of our Wellness Program Lecture series.
Dr. Ruben Olmedo, Director of the Division of Toxicology at Mount Sinai Hospital, and our scientific advisor Dr. Silvana Riggio presented “What you should know about alcohol, vaping and drugs” a presentation/conversation with our students and teachers on addictions and substance abuse.
Dr. Olmedo explained the composition and the toxicity of different kinds of substances (e-cigarettes, tobacco, alcohol, opioids) and reviewed research on how they impact adolescent brain development.
