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

Prevention Across the Lifespan 3-Part Webinar Series

Substance Use Prevention Among Young Adults

April 11, 2024


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.


Webinar Description

In this 90-minute webinar, Dr. Kilmer will share research related to substance use with this age group, as well as evidence-based prevention and intervention efforts. The importance of connecting young adults to these efforts (and opportunities for doing so) will be discussed. A one-hour presentation will be followed by a Q&A session.


Webinar Objectives

In this webinar, participants will:

  • Learn about substance use during young adulthood and how it affects health and wellbeing during this life period.
  • Learn about strategies that can be used to prevent substance misuse and related harms among college students and other young adults.
