Teens Get Their Questions Answered on 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 https://www.nidachat.org 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.
