Sharpening Your Prevention Tools Series: Using Strategic Plans to Move from Vision to Action
Contact us at [email protected]
“No man is an island,” and as prevention practitioners, we collaborate with partners to build healthier communities day in and day out. We have many tools to support our work but, like a chef with a dull knife or a health care provider with a broken stethoscope, these tools are only useful if they are kept in good working order. Join us for a series virtual technical assistance sessions to explore three tools – sustainability plans, strategic plans and logic models – that can support your efforts to create community change. In all three sessions, experts will set the stage by introducing each tool and give participants the opportunity to ask questions in this interview-style series.
