Displays raise awareness of drug overdoses

Staff Writer

Students from DuBois Central Catholic helped the Clearfield-Jefferson Drug and Alcohol Commission set up displays to notify the public of International Overdose Awareness Day, which is being recognized today. The students placed pinwheels at Eat'n Park in DuBois and (pictured) the Gold Eagle in Brookville, each of which represented one of the overdose deaths that takes place every day in the United States.
