HAUPPAUGE, NY - At the June 22, 2021 General Meeting of the Suffolk County Legislature, Majority Leader Susan A. Berland (D-Dix Hills) had the opportunity to recognize Cihara Jaimes Satudio, a Brentwood High School Student from the 16th Legislative District, as the county-wide winner of the 2021 “Truth About Stimulant Drinks” video public service announcement competition. The annual contest, which is open to all high school students in Suffolk County, seeks to inform residents about the adverse health risks associated with energy drink consumption, particularly among youth.
"I was happy to present Cihara with a proclamation recognizing her as the county-wide winner in the 2021 competition and I hope her video helps bring awareness to this very important issue,” said Legislator Susan A. Berland. "Unfortunately, consuming these drinks does not come without potential health risks, which is why it is so important that we engage our youth on this topic and encourage them to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Congratulations Cihara, we are so proud of you!"
