90 Minute Opioids Lesson
By far our most popular lesson, this two-day dive into opioids and the ways that they can impact our bodies, brains, lives, and communities engages students in a variety of ways, keeping students on-topic, entertained, and learning throughout.
20 Minute Opioids Lesson
A quick introduction to what opioids are, how they work, and how they might affect ourselves and our communities.
The Brain Architecture Game
How circumstances, drugs, and decisions affect the how well the brain functions.
Columbia Health Services offers two different versions:
The Original Brain Architecture Game
works with the first 8 years of life, illustrating to students how circumstances, trauma, and privilege in the early years can affect us throughout our lives.
The Drug & Brain Architecture Game
works with grades 5 through 12 and illustrates, like the original game, how circumstances, trauma, and privilege affect our abilities, and also looks at the choices we make and how they can continue to affect our brains and our lives.

"When we discussed the idea of her visiting my Anatomy & Physiology course, she was responsive to our learning needs. She sent me her 90-minute opioid lesson and asked which parts were best suited for my students. The professional and personalized approach she took towards styling our learning based on our learning community needs, experience, prior knowledge, and curiosities was amazing."
