March 27, 2020


About the Presentation:

Closures resulting from COVID-19 have created a need for adaptation and innovation among the prevention workforce. Quickly shifting your entire practice to a virtual setting is not a simple task, and this online event provides an opportunity for prevention workers to share insights and suggestions regarding how to continue delivering effective and engaging prevention efforts to stakeholders, community members, and youth. Webinar participants also acknowledge and address challenges inherent to remote interactions and highlight topics of interest for prevention workers during the COVID-19 crisis.



Key Discussion Questions: 

  • What prevention activities can and should continue under the current circumstances? 

  • How can you use social media to get your prevention messages out? 

  • What are best practices for working in the virtual space? 

  • What innovative steps are you taking to move your prevention work online?
