Webinar: Keeping Healthy Kids Healthy: Substance Abuse Prevention Works, Wednesday, December 19th at 12 Noon Central

There is no charge for this webinar. It is a research-supported fact that most teens today are making healthy choices when it comes to substance use. Yet opportunities for kids to remain free from substance use disorder are jeopardized when we as caring adults lack basic understanding about how our attitudes and behavior can protect them from early, risky use of alcohol and other drugs. This webinar will outline substance use prevention as a health science. FCD Prevention Works will share best practices, along with robust data from the international FCD Student Attitudes and Behavior Survey, to explore practical ways for you to positively impact the health of the teens in your life. Speaker David Sherrell Interim Manager Regional Office, FCD Prevention Works REGISTER NOW A certificate of completion will be awarded for attending this event. CE is not available. Questions?
