Health Resources in Action, a Boston-based non-profit committed to developing programs that advance health and medical research, has chosen Milford High School's Students Against Destructive Decisions (SADD) Chapter to receive a $2500 grant – one of just 15 schools selected from across the state.

SADD, which boasts upwards of 40 members at the high school, is led by faculty advisor Diana Dow, Health and Wellness Curriculum Team Leader. With her encouragement, SADD co-president Dylan Shea, a Milford High School senior, wrote this grant which was ultimately awarded to the student group. The money will go towards helping to raise awareness about the dangers of tobacco and other tobacco products (OTP's). This category includes products such as cigars and cigarillos, which according to the student group, are packaged and marketed to look like candy cigarettes, but are just as dangerous. The funds will also help to support SADD events during the year.

Students from SADD have also been conducting "on the street" interviews on the public's opinion of tobacco products. They have been out in the community on four separate occasions and have surveyed more than 100 people on this issue.

Students will attend an anti-smoking rally at the State House in March as well as present the data they collect to the Milford School Committee and the Milford Board of Health.
