I'm glad these programs are working in Iceland. Here's hoping the US can find a way to implement it. #health #teens
​In Iceland, teenage smoking, drinking and drug use have been radically cut. Why aren't other countries following its lead?

Writer. Science Enthusist
Introduction
My name is Megan. My two passions in life are writing and science. While I love learning about many of the sciences, my favorites include Astronomy and Meteorology. You can join the discussion with me on my blog, SchooledByScience

In my free time I like to go camping, learn new how to cook new dishes (mostly desserts, I have a bit of a sweet tooth,) read/ watch Harry Potter, or catch the latest Phillies or Flyers game. If it's a clear night, I'll pack up my telescope and go stargazing. 

Thanks for connecting with me!
