Brac office head Julianne Scott speaks at opening

(CNS Local Life): The National Drug Council (NDC) officially opened its Cayman Brac office last week during a visit by Minister for Health Dwayne Seymour. The office, which has been operating since last year, offers full-time services to all residents. Prior to the office opening last year, only limited services conducted by NDC staff visiting from Grand Cayman were available to residents of the Brac.

“I’m very pleased that we now have this essential office providing key services to the residents of Cayman Brac,” said Seymour. “The National Drug Council plays a crucial role in education and prevention of drug misuse and abuse, so the office is a vital resource on the island, particularly for our young people.”

The office is run by Julianne Scott, who has returned to her native island after several years working on Grand Cayman.
