  • Coalition impact and/or environmental strategies
  • Prevention provider professional development
  • Prevention ethics (note: if you submit a proposal on this topic, you must provide a 3hr training session)

The Call for Presentations is open to all prevention providers; community anti-drug coalitions; government agencies with a focus on substance misuse, public health, and related disciplines.  Presentations will be offered during 90-minute workshop periods.
