Community Drug Education Committee (CDEC)

Community Drug Education Committee (CDEC) is a group of pharmacy school students that organizes events that educate students at various institutions and grade levels ranging from 1st grade to college undergraduates on health topics relevant to them, including basic hygiene, nutrition, bullying, sexual education, drug abuse, and many more topics. We have visited many local schools such as Children of Peace, Ambrose Plamondon, and Ombudsman High School in the past. If you would like to improve your public speaking abilities, become more involved in the community, and find a genuine fulfillment in inspiring young minds, then please join our organization. We welcome everyone!
