Harris Health System Ben Taub Hospital is hosting the Reality Education for Drivers—RED—Program for young drivers (14-25 years old) and their parents or guardians.* This free one day course focuses on driving SECURE (wear your seatbelt!), SILENT (free of distractions like cell phones) and SOBER (no alcohol or drug use while driving).
The course includes class discussions, multimedia presentations, and a “behind the scenes” tour of the hospital’s trauma center. There is also a special section for parents, guardians, and other adult influencers in which RED associates share research-based tools that can be used to help teens become safer drivers.
All students will receive a Certificate of Completion for community service hours** at the end of the course. Adults will receive a bag of “tools” for helping their young driver.
Plan to park in the Ben Taub Visitor Parking garage. The maximum parking cost for the entire day is $12.
The class will be held in the 4th Floor Conference Room.
Please be aware lunch will not be provided. Participants may purchase lunch or snacks from the hospital's cafeteria.
