Kentucky Educational Television’s (KET’s) Renee Shaw and her guests – including Kentucky 5th District Congressman Harold “Hal” Rogers, UNITE Deputy Director Tom Vicini, and Carter County UNITE Coalition Co-Chair Shelly Steiner – explore the issue of substance use prevention among adolescents on Health Three60. The program looks at the importance of messaging, positive youth development, mental health screening, community coalitions, parent education and more.
