On Tuesday, February 28 from 2-3 p.m. EST, SAMHSA will host a webinar to launch a new video series titled, College Drinking: Prevention Perspectives from the Field—a resource that showcases underage drinking prevention strategies on and around college campuses across the nation. The first video in the series, “Lessons Learned at Frostburg State University,” explores actions taken to reduce underage and harmful drinking in the campus community, and offers educators, parents, and prevention organizations insights into what local prevention efforts worked at Frostburg State University.
SAMHSA will convene the 13th Annual Prevention Day on Monday, February 6, in conjunction with CADCA’s National Leadership Forum. This year’s Prevention Day theme is The Power of Prevention: Strengthening Community Voices.
