It's a new month, and that means that we have another outstanding parent to recognize as a Five Moms All-Star! Please join me in congratulating Amanda Smith of Anna, IL! Amanda keeps busy in her small community in Southern Illinois. A full-time mother, student, and nurse, Amanda interacts with parents at out-patient clinics in her town and reminds parents about the importance of safeguarding their medicine cabinets. She offers parents resources and guides on how to carefully monitor and use cough medicine. Amanda's efforts are helping parents in her community keep their kids safe from cough medicine abuse. Her dedication to educating parents to prevent this substance abuse behavior is the reason we have chosen her as our March All-Star! We only have two more people to recognize with our All-Star search. If you have a story to share about how you've used what you've learned from the Five Moms to help fight cough medicine abuse, the time to let us know is now! Submit your story today and you could be our next winner. We're sending each of our Five Moms All-Stars an iPod Touch as a special thank you. Our April contest ends on April 25, so get your entry in now!
