ORLANDO, Fla. - One in seven people in the U.S. will battle addiction, according to the 2016 Surgeon General's report on Alcohol, Drugs, and Health. One health care organization is partnering with Miss Florida 2019 to reach high school and college students. Miss Florida 2019 Michaela McLean tells News 6 she has visited 12 schools for the Real Talk program since being crowned in June. She recently visited Ocoee High School, speaking to students in student government, the peer mediation group and the minority leadership scholars. "It uses real world examples from high school students, college-aged students and even young adults who feel like they had to experiment with drugs and alcohol to know how their bodies would react," she said.
