    National Drug Facts Week (NDFW) is a health observance week for teens, sponsored by the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH).  NDFW aims to shatter myths about drugs and drug abuse through community-based educational events and activities.  Visit the NDFW website to learn how to host or sponsor a NDFW event in your community and spread the word about NDFW through Facebook, Twitter, and your blog.  Encourage the youth with whom you work to take the National Drug IQ Challenge and to participate in Drug Facts Chat Day on January 28th to have their questions about drugs answered by experts.
