Dickinson Athletics Announces Guest Speaker Chris Herren

(Carlisle, Pa.) – The Dickinson College Department of Athletics is excited to announce that it will bring Chris Herren, founder of The Herren Project, to campus on March 27 for a presentation to all student-athletes on the dangers of substance abuse and addiction.

The Herren Project is a non-profit foundation established by former NBA basketball player, Chris Herren that assists individuals and families struggling with addiction. The initiative was launched to break the stigma of addiction, bring awareness to the dangers of substance abuse and encourage positive decision making to navigate life's challenges.

This will provide a great opportunity for Dickinson's student-athletes to gain insight and information about substance abuse, addiction, and ways to identify and provide support to individuals who may be facing these challenges. Herren has been seen on ESPN, and has given presentations at schools, colleges and organizations across the nation. He has become a well-respected and empowering speaker, looking to provide motivation and support to individuals as they embrace a message of education and awareness.
