Pasco-Hernando State College (PHSC) will host a DUI Awareness Seminar on Tuesday, November 13, 2018 at the Porter Campus at Wiregrass Ranch in Wesley Chapel, 2727 Mansfield Blvd. from 12:30 to 2 p.m. in the Conference Center, building B, room 303.
Guest speakers Ellen Snelling, chair of Tampa Alcohol Coalition (TAC), a representative from Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD), and a personal story from an individual in recovery will join a panel discussion on how driving under the influence affects individuals, families, and the community. Eddie Williams, PHSC assistant professor of human services, will moderate the panel. Both TAC and MADD have similar missions to increase awareness about the consequences of underage drinking, drunk driving, and drugged driving in our community. Additionally, both agencies promote community support for the enforcement of alcohol policies and laws and collaborates with local and state organizations, agencies, media and officials in their efforts to prevent high risk drinking and impaired driving.
The event is part of PHSC’s ongoing Community Awareness Series to increase public awareness of resources available to community members. Students, faculty, staff and the community are invited to attend at no cost. For more information call 1.855.NOW.PHSC, or visit phsc.edu.
