About the program: The New England Prevention Technology Transfer Center Research and Design (RAD) Fellowship program is an opportunity for professionals who have been in the field of prevention for five or more years to work both independently and as part of a collaborative team to develop an innovative piece of research and accompanying tool for the benefit of the workforce at large. This program will support a seven-month term, during which the Fellows will each create a tool or product around a central, priority subject area. At the end of the program, the Fellows will present their products to the workforce in a symposium meant to demonstrate how the products should and can be used.
Priority Subject Area for 2022: The Changing Landscape of Cannabis in New England with a focus on the IC & RC Domains.
