ifIknew is a health initiative for young adults that uses a multi media approach, including social media and in person programs, to address the contemporary issues that impact the well-being, self-image, careers, and relationships of people in their 20's and 30's.

If I Knew is a prevention education project that raises awareness about risky behaviors that can profoundly impact lives.


From ZMB Media and Jewish Community Services, this is Hooked, stories of loss, love, and most importantly, hope as told by recovering drug addicts, family members, and friends. All voices that you hear are individuals who volunteered to share their experiences with us and are not clients of The Associated.
