Morning Matters Breakfast on May 9, 2017 presents keynote speaker, Rona Zlokower, Executive Director of Media Power Youth
“Our mission gets more relevant with each minute. We as individuals, family members, employers, colleagues and friends need to take control of media’s lure and attraction and use it to satisfy our needs, not allow it to shape us and our children’s view of the world, themselves, and how to relate to each other”.

Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s (SAMHSA’s)
In December, 2015, we were listed on the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s (SAMHSA’s) National Registry of Evidence-Based Programs and Practices (NREPP), adding to our status as evidence based by the NH Center for Excellence in Alcohol and Other Drug Services.
“Evaluation results indicated significant increases in students’ understanding that media violence is often glorified, unrealistic, and can make children act more violently, and advertising can make smoking and fast foods look healthy and can affect children’s desires and behaviors.”
