2011 South Carolina Coroner's Conference

DBF was honored to have our own Dale Galloway and Erik Baaske invited to present information on the choking Game at the 2011 Annual S.C. Coroner's Conference.  We look forward to working together with South Carolina and other states to bring awareness of this teen risk behavior.

The ripple effect of this conference has been nothing short of amazing.  We're not surprised - this group was very receptive and supportive.  And we will walk through every door open to us!  We welcome the networking and assistance of all and anyone who would like to further the cause. Almost two dozen speaking engagements are sure to hit DBF's calendar  referred from the conference. 

We are going to remind the general public about action they can take, right now, right in their own state to further the cause. 
Contact the office of your elected officials and ask that they call the CDC and request to be briefed on our issue. This briefing will most likely take place between a staff member of the political office and a researcher at the CDC, such as Dr. Gilchrist.  To read ideas on how to go about this - Check out our Pg 4 of DBF's 2010 Newsletter
