Prevention in Action Webinar Series
One of the goals of the New England PTTC is to promote and facilitate networking opportunities between and amongst prevention professionals in the New England states. To that end, the New England PTTC announces the launch of the Prevention in Action Webinar series. Each webinar within this webinar series will feature a success story in prevention. This is an opportunity to share across the New England states those successful prevention initiatives being implemented across the region. It's a chance to learn about a strategy or initiative you may be interested in implementing in your state or community. Topic areas will include implementing a specific prevention program, implementing an environmental strategy, promoting prevention within communities, building prevention workforce capacity, and many, many more.
Each webinar presentation will take participants through the steps taken to put the particular initiative into action. At the conclusion of each presentation, webinar participants will have an opportunity to ask questions of the presenter and get tips on how they could replicate in their own state or community.
All webinars in this series are free of charge
