Faculty and staff from  the newly established Wake Forest Center for Research on Substance Use and Addiction (CRSUA) collaborated with the Forsyth County Coalition for Drug Abuse Prevention (CDAP), a partnership of members throughout the community from a wide range of backgrounds all focused on the common goal of preventing drug abuse in the Piedmont Triad of North Carolina. The strategies utilized by the Coalition towards mitigating drug usage are desperately needed in the Piedmont Triad due to the high prevalence of drug use in the region. Unfortunately, nearly half of the 14 counties in the Triad and Northwest North Carolina are on the Top 20 list for deaths related to substance abuse statewide (Hinton J.,  2013, Sept), with the Triad among top in state for substance abuse deaths (  Consequently, the significance of CDAP and other drug prevention organizations such as Project Lazarus in the Piedmont Triad cannot be overstated.   Graduate students from the MS in Biomedical Sciences MedPrep program and the Neuroscience and Integrative Physiology and Pharmacology PhD programs participated in events such as Red Ribbon Week, Community Service Awards, Disseminating Safe Celebrating Information, and presiding at a booth at the regional Dixie Classic Fair.
