The NNIA network presents Recovery Radio Fresno with Louis Angel. This weeks guest is Daisy Lopez from Performing Above The High Project
Daisy has dedicated the last 8 years of her career to youth development and community programming with various nonprofits throughout the Central Valley. She’s led various projects including teen pregnancy prevention initiatives, tobacco prevention programming, gang awareness and prevention projects, and most recently she was hired as the Program Manager of the Fresno County Marijuana Prevention Project known as PATH. Daisy graduated in 2011 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Criminology and Restorative Justice and more recently completed a Master of Arts in Leadership Studies from Fresno Pacific University.
The Performing Above the High (PATH) Project is a program of the California Health Collaborative, a nonprofit dedicated to serving the undeserved. The PATH Project was created in response to the growing marijuana use rates among Fresno County teens. Funded by the Fresno County Department of Behavioral Health, the PATH Project's main goal is to decrease marijuana use among the 12-20 year old population by creating environments where marijuana use among teens is less accessible, less acceptable, and less desirable. The PATH Project's main strategies include community norm change efforts, evidence based youth education, parent education and awareness efforts, and community advocacy activities.
Other featured speaker’s include Haide Medina and Alyssa Boyles, who both share a love for the people they work with. I personally know Haide and very happy to have met her. She puts all her heart into her work and has a deep commitment for the people she is helping.
Recovery Radio Fresno would like to also give a special thanks to Haide Medina helping to make this show happen. Thanks Haide!
