Health Center And Kick Butts Day With Gloucester High School Students

Students from Gloucester High School came to the State House this week for the Massachusetts League of Community Health Centers annual State House outreach day and Kick Butts day.

Yesterday exhibit tables were set up at the Grand Staircase and Nurses Hall with featured speaker Health and Human Services Secretary Marylou Sudders. I enjoyed learning about the student’s work and the Gloucester High School Health Center and thank them for coming to Boston to advocate for health and wellness.

As part of the annual ‘make smoking history’ advocacy effort, students from Gloucester were in the State House today to raise awareness of teen use of e-cigarettes and vape pens, which are attracting a growing number of young users. These harmful devices are as cheap, sweet tasting, and easy to get as they are easy to get addicted to.
