Willing to Take a Stand!
On October 15, 2010, members of the Southern Lehigh High School and Catasauqua High School SADD Chapters attended the Lehigh Valley Health Network’s press conference that kicked off of a widespread public awareness campaign that emphasizes distracted driving, in particular cell phone use and text messaging. The campaign features a series of billboard ads, radio ads and yard signs that drive home messages about the dangers of participating in text messaging while driving.
“As the region’s leading healthcare provider and as a Level I Trauma Center, our health network witnesses the consequences of distracted driving all too often,” said Elliot Sussman, M.D., LVHN’s president and CEO. “We hope our new awareness campaign will make people think twice before they use their cell phones while driving and that by educating our community, we can prevent a visit to our trauma center after a tragic crash caused by distracted driving.”

Spotlight on SADD!
The Annual Lehigh Valley SADD (Students Against Destructive Decisions) Conference was held on March 26, 2010 at Lehigh Valley Hospital. This year, the SADD chapters involved in the conference prepared videos on the subject of distracted and other dangerous driving. The conference had an "American Idol" theme, as the judges critiqued the videos as they were presented. The SADD Chapters also talked about about how they used social media to get their message out and exchanged ideas for how to do this most effectively. Bravo to these students and all of their hard work! Click here to watch their videos!
