The Taylor Hooton Foundation partner with HACU on Hoot’s Chalk Talk
The Taylor Hooton Foundation (THF) is partnering with the
Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities (HACU) to provide Hoot’s
Chalk Talk education programs at a 5% discounted price offered to HACU
members on the dangers of appearance and performance enhancing drugs (APEDs),
including over-the-counter (OTC) dietary supplements and anabolic steroids.
The THF was formed in memory of Taylor E. Hooton, a 17-year
old high school student athlete from Texas. Hooton took his own life on July
15, 2003, as a result of using anabolic steroids. His parents, family and
friends founded the organization after learning of the growing number of middle
school, high school and college students illegally using and abusing anabolic
steroids, unregulated, OTC dietary supplements, human growth hormones (HGH) and
Over 1.5 million high school students in the U.S. admit to
using anabolic steroids, not including those unknowingly ingested through
spiked dietary supplements, and 85% of youth report never having a parent,
teacher, or coach talk with them about the dangers of APEDs.
