Griffin Hospital to Host Prom Safety Awareness Night on April 7

By Griffin Hospital on 3/11/2015

Juniors and seniors of Lower Naugatuck Valley high schools and their parents are invited to the 5th Annual Prom Safety Awareness Night from 5:30-7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, April 7 at Griffin Hospital, 130 Division Street in Derby. 

“Underage drinking and distracted driving increases during prom season and the most powerful tool against these risk factors is parents,” said Cathleen Kellett of Griffin Hospital’s Community Outreach & Valley Parish Nurse Program. 

The free event consists of a panel of emergency medical technicians, police officers, a physician from Griffin Hospital’s Emergency Department, and a local teen drunk driving survivor. The panel will discuss various aspects of their job in relation to teen drunk and distracted driving in the Valley. There will also be a question and answer session.

Griffin Hospital will provide refreshments and participating students will receive free gift cards for Dunkin Donuts and be entered into a grand prize drawing for prom ticket bids.

This event is free, but seating is limited. RSVP by March 28 to Dee at 203.924.7614 or kopecs@att.net. Please provide your name, phone number, town and number of guests.

The event is sponsored by The Valley Community Foundation, Shelton Youth Service Bureau, Ansonia Youth Service Bureau, Valley Parish Nurse Program, Safe Kids Greater Naugatuck Valley and Griffin Hospital.
