Keene State to conduct substance abuse research
The panel featured all the groups that are affected by teen substance abuse, she said.
The 2011 Youth Risk Behavior Surveillance Survey results show Keene High School has on average one of the highest substance abuse rates in the state, Droppa said.
An in-depth study into the root causes of the increase could help the community understand what is causing the increase.
"We want our students to be researchers, but we also want them to use their skills to then use their research to advocate for change," Droppa said.
