Professor Kathleen Ayers-Lanzillotta
Professor Kathleen Ayers Lanzillotta, coordinator of the Chemical Dependency Counselor Program at Suffolk County Community College, Brentwood, NY, briefly discusses the importance of breaking the stigma of alcoholism and addictive disorders so that those affected can get help more readily. Addiction is a progressive illness and often is the catalyst to other serious illnesses that may lead to death. Addiction can also strongly affect the lives of those closest to those afflicted. She states, "For every one person struggling with an addiction problem, it seriously affects the lives of four other people."
Text & Drive
Everyone knows that texting and driving is a deadly mix, yet people still do it. The second one takes their eyes off the road to read or answer a text could set off a chain of events that would irrevocably change your life, the lives of strangers, and the lives of those you love. Remember, you're not just hurting yourself when you text and drive. Thank you to Lindsey Fink, Radio and Television student intern, for creating this video.
