Prevention Across the Lifespan - Webinar 1: Substance Use Prevention Among Young Adults

Prevention Across the Lifespan

Webinar 1: Substance Use Prevention Among Young Adults

Webinar Series Description

In our prevention efforts, we most often focus on children and youth. However, prevention is important across the entire lifespan.  In this 3-part series, participants will learn about substance use among young adults, mid-life adults, and older adults. Participants will also learn about preventive strategies that can be used with the adult population.

Each of the three 90-minute webinars will focus on a different age group. Participants can register for the entire series, or for single webinars. Each webinar will consist of a one-hour presentation, followed by a Q&A session. In Webinar 1, we will focus on young adults with Dr. Kilmer.
