The idea behind the traveling DeBakey Drug Education Program was developed in 1993 by the late Ernest G. DeBakey, M.D. Recognized by his peers as one of the most outstanding general surgeons in the Southeast, Dr. DeBakey and Infirmary Health teamed up to bring the Drug Education Vehicle to life.
Today, the Drug Education Vehicle travels to almost 200 sites in Mobile, Alabama and surrounding counties each year visiting public, private, and parochial schools as well as attending community events and special programs educating on the dangers of drugs and alcohol. To date, the DeBakey Drug Education Vehicle has reached over 275,000 students in the Gulf Coast Region.
