Abstract

Just Say Know is a novel drug education program that focuses on teaching facts, not fear. We aimed to create a seminar series that educates students on one drug or class of drugs at a time, focusing on the characteristics of the drug, its mental and physical effects, potential consequences (positive or negative), legal status, VCU and national student use rates, and ways to reduce the harms associated with drug use, such as how to respond to an overdose-related emergency. Just Say Know (JSK) strives to be dispassionate and agenda-free. This poster reviews highlights from our first few years' worth of seminars, including evaluation questions given to our audiences about drug knowledge, drug use intentionality and harm reduction strategies.
