NIDA's Chat Day

The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) is offering their annual Chat Day this Thursday, January 24 from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. HC DrugFree is proud to once again be able to provide the Howard County access code.

Students may login at with the Howard County Access Code 59162, create a user name, and submit their questions to NIDA’s panel of scientific experts. In real-time, an expert will reply.

This national event will take place even if HCPSS is closed for weather challenges, so we encourage classes to participate and staff/parents to offer incentives to students participating from home. All questions/answers can be viewed online and will be shared by HC DrugFree.
Our Howard County students have questions! In a previous year, our students submitted 869 questions in one day, so we know our students want answers to their many questions.

Again, the 2019 Chat Day Access Code for All Howard County Students is 59162.
