BHHS Panel Discusses Dangers of Drug Abuse

Students in a Beverly Hills High School Medical Science Academy class were recently tasked with completing an independent project that offers significant benefits to the community. Senior Colby Gilardian, along with Dr. Alan Kaye, D.D.S. worked together to create a panel of experienced individuals to share their stories of drug abuse to emphasize the risks of drugs.

The panel featured Kaye, who delivered an enlightening presentation on the effects of drug abuse; Jodi Barber, who shared the heartbreaking story of losing her son to drug abuse; Aliza Grama, a former addict who has triumphantly overcome her struggle with various substances; Pam Congdon, Executive Director of Calaoms; Sergeant Jeffrey Newman from the Beverly Hills Police Department and Tiffany Davis, who discussed drug abuse in the talent industry.

Gilardian told the Courier that the event left many students in tears and had a profound effect, with many students expressing increased resolve to stay away from drug use.
