Alcohol and Other Drug Project Poster Campaigns- The HWS AOD Project has initiated major poster campaigns on campus. You might have seen these displays posted around campus.

These posters are a great source for quick facts for research projects or papers and can be found online.

Links to class lectures and the course home page can be found here.
