As community change agents, we embrace the philosphy in our work to improve the quality of life in our nation's communityies through prevention work. High performing coalitions are those that have developed broad-based strategic alliances, implemented proven and promising strategies and achieved population-level change. Training sessions will featue the latest data available on the impact and implications of "medical" and commercialized marijuana, cover the increasing importance of community coaltions stemming the tide of the opioid epidemic and many other relevent subjects in prevention. These topic areas will also include snapshots of the changing landscapres of other drug and alcohol prevalence across the nation. Best practices in tackling drugs on the rise and their associated consequences will also be shared.
