MSU and Do Right Foundation Team Up for HIV/AIDS Education

Do Right Foundation

The School of Community Health & Policy’s Get SMART (Students/Society Mobilized and Retooled to Transform) Project will be working together with the Mario Do Right Foundation to promote substance abuse and HIV/AIDS awareness among emerging adults on the Morgan State University Campus and surrounding community.  The Mario Do Right Foundation is a non-profit youth development organization emphasizing substance abuse prevention via education, awareness and support to those who are children of substance abusing parents.

The Do Right Foundation will share information related to the Get SMART project via their Do Right/Social Toaster Campaign, which will post Get SMART project information to their social media sites (Facebook, Twitter) informing emerging adults of substance abuse and HIV/AIDS information and ways that they can become involved with Get SMART.  The Get SMART project will also promote information about the Do Right Foundations programs and events through the university’s Facebook and Twitter pages.

The GET SMART project is a SAMHSA grant funded project that aims to prevent substance use, HIV and sexually transmitted infections among 18 -24 year old emerging adults on campus and within a one mile radius of Morgan State University.  Partnering with the Do Right Foundation to increase the projects reach and utilize the latest social media tools to engage the targeted population will go a long way towards meeting Get SMART’s goals.
