This webinar will offer a blend of theory and hands-on activities, including article summarization and brainstorming AI-driven intervention strategies for substance misuse prevention scenarios. It promises to enhance your understanding of AI's potential in substance misuse prevention work, while also highlighting the critical issues of misinformation and bias inherent in these technologies.




  • Experiment with generative AI to discover ideas for daily substance misuse prevention work
  • Explain the basic operation of multiple, publicly accessible generative AI tools
  • Describe types of bias, inequity, and misinformation that can arise through use of LLMs
