Additional performances by local New Brunswick teenagers who completed a transformational learning experience through the AMARD&V: Healing Through the Arts-Expansion Program at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital’s Community Health Promotion Program, with the goal that they become Teen Dating Violence Prevention Ambassadors in their communities.
