Offering Healthy Alternatives

The Islip Drug Education Awareness (IDEA) Task Force and Wellness Club hosted its annual Health Fair for students at Islip High School. During the one-day event, local businesses provided information to the high school students regarding healthy activities for after school and summer vacation, as well as available services on a range of topics including anti-bullying and substance abuse.

 “The objective of the Health Fair is to provide and promote services and resources that will enhance the lives and health of our students,” stated Islip High School social worker specializing in substance abuse Carin Winter, who helped organize the event.
