St. Joseph Continues Anti-Steroid Abuse Program

Towson, MD

St. Joseph Medical Center announced that it will continue to fund its successful steroid education program, "Powered by ME!," which is entering its fourth year. The program educates young people, coaches, parents and health professionals about the dangers of steroid abuse among student athletes. It was founded in partnership with Congressional Representative Elijah Cummings, the Maryland State School Superintendent and other community partners. The program was funded in its first three years by a grant from CHI's Mission and Ministry Fund.
