Michael Zotto, current WI Board of Education trustee and retired NYPD detective, will host a presentation Thursday night about the negative effects of heroin use among teenagers. It's scheduled to run from 7-8:30 p.m. at the Church of St. Joseph's in Babylon.
Zotto will discuss the warning signs, the availability and inexpensiveness of the drug and where parents can go to get their teen help.
"As a caring community we need to be strong role models for our teens," he said. One way to do this is to arm ourselves with good, solid, helpful, reliable information. We need to know what the kids know in order to keep them safe."
Also speaking at the presentation will be Robin McKinnon, prevention specialist at the Prevention Resource Center at South Oaks.
