Few would argue that understanding the past is key to shaping a safe and healthy future. In the context of prevention, this means applying lessons learned from our past successes to new prevention priorities emerging regularly on the landscape.
This two-part series will examine lessons learned from prevention efforts to curb vaping and e-cigarette use among young adults, and explore opportunities for applying these lessons to the prevention of other emerging substances such as methamphetamines, cocaine, and adult use marijuana.

In this webinar, we will examine current and emerging substance misuse trends to prepare participants to locate sources of local, regional and state-/jurisdiction-level data, and identify an approach to preventing substance misuse (through the lens of vaping prevention) to provide prevention practitioners with the resources they need to implement effective strategies across priority prevention topics. Diane Litterer of the New Jersey Prevention Network will be joining our webinar as an expert contributor.

Also, look on our events page for the April 1, 2020 peer-sharing call on this same topic!


During both virtual events, participants will have an opportunity to pose questions, discuss challenges, and connect with other prevention professionals.
