Where To Get Help 

A few years ago, it would have been hard to find information about media literacy outside of scholarly journals. Now, there are numerous Web sites, studies and organizations working to spread the word about this broad-based strategy. In Durham, a forum on Media for Youth that will focus on media literacy will be held at 4 p.m. on Aug. 21 at the Center for Documentary Studies. Call Paul Savery, coordinator of prevention services for The Durham Center, for details, (919) 560-7284.
