In 2007, Highland Park native Cebrin Goodman died of a heroin
overdose. Last month, a new interactive exhibit opened at the
Robert Crown Center for Health Education in Hinsdale, dedicated to
Goodman and built to teach elementary and junior high students the
science behind "Just Say No."
The "Science Behind Drugs and Prevention" classroom, which
opened Sept. 25 to about 100 hourth-graders from the Maerker
Elementary School in Westmont, uses interactive exhibits, 3-D
models, and a plasma TV to engage students. Classes from Westmont,
La Grange and River Grove have already gone through the curriculum,
and 13 more classes from the eight-county area served by the center
are booked through the end of November.
