We were very grateful to have encountered Dr. Farid Talih, an IC graduate, a psychiatrist at AUBMC who specializes in addiction and sleeping disorders. His presentation revolved around the topic concerning the effects of alcohol and drugs. As many of us might be exposed to or even tempted by such things, Dr.Talih raised awareness to help people make healthy choices and know what to expect should they face a tricky situation. He focused on the consequences of substance abuse and what effect it has on the human brain. He showed students images of celebrities before and after their use of drugs or excessive alcohol. We were encouraged to speak our minds and to ask questions and which helped us understand this problem. We found the presentation quite relevant in this very crucial year where students want to rebel against the rules and experience new thing.
