Minnesota Workshops: Environmental Strategies for Substance Misuse Prevention

Publication Date: Jan 24, 2020

Reducing substance misuse and unhealthy use of alcohol is a top priority for communities across the country. Environmental prevention strategies (EPS) are population-based interventions that change the context in which people make decisions.

“These strategies are important because they can alter the environment in ways that help large numbers of people make healthy decisions,” says presenter Chuck Klevgaard, Prevention Manager, Great Lakes PTTC.

Coming up in February, Klevgaard will be conducting one-day workshops in Minnesota that cover the various environmental prevention strategies: 

  • Policy law and regulations
  • Enforcing new laws and regulations
  • Communication and social marketing 

Participants will take away information on how to: 

  • Fit environmental strategies into a comprehensive approach to prevention
  • Assess your organization’s readiness and capacity to implement EPS
  • Find the right partners to help you implement EPS

The workshops are offered in partnership with the Regional Prevention Coordinators for Metro MN, Southwest MN, and Northwest MN. RPCMN logo
