Siouxland CARES invites adults, parents, community leaders, organization staff, etc., to attend a “Be In The Know” Parent Session, on Monday, October 24 from 7-8 p.m. at the City Hall Council Chambers, Sioux City, IA. Dr. Ray Sturdevant, Pediatrician, Prairie Pediatrics, Sioux City, and Marlene Sturdevant, ARNP and CNS, Prairie Pediatrics, will present on the topic, “Your Child’s Prescription-Use and Misuse”.


Dr. Sturdevant earned his undergraduate degree from the University of Illinois in Champaign/Urbana. He is trained and experienced in all areas of general pediatrics, with special interest in the management and treatment of children with behavior and school problems.  A member of the American Academy of Pediatrics, Dr. Sturdevant has been active in medical staff affairs, serving as Chairman for the Department of Pediatrics.


Marlene Sturdevant is an Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioner and also a Clinical Nurse Specialist with experience in pediatrics and special interest in adolescent health care and transcultural nursing. Her thesis focused on special-needs children and their families.  She has served as health care provider for the Crittenton Center Shelter and Boys & Girls Home for over 15 years.


Use this “Be In the Know” Parent Session as an opportunity to talk to children about alcohol and other illegal substances.  Talking with children about drugs is not as difficult as you may think, but it is not as simple as delivering one message (“Don’t do drugs”).  Ongoing communications that “grows” with your child is important!  Keep Our Children Safe & Healthy!
