'Remember for Change' and 'HealthyU'
Fort Pierce - Friday December 16, 2022: This week on In Focus, with IRSC Public Media, 'Remember for Change’ an organization founded by Melanie Trewyn who lost a daughter to a drunk driver less than two-years ago.
She’s turned her grief into a campaign to get tough on underage drinkers and the bartenders who serve them. Joining her is Devin Davis, a Senior from Fort Pierce Central High School. He's also president of the school’s Leo Club and he’s recruiting some students to join the ‘Remember for a Change’ rally on February 7.

Then we'll talk about 'HealthyU', a public health outreach program created by Pat Roberts, who is the Deputy Director at the City of Port St. Lucie’s Parks and Recreation Department.
She established the program after losing her son to fentanyl. The aim of 'HealthyU' is to connect those suffering from emotional or physical trauma with the support services they need to enhance their quality of life.
