The field of prevention science is dedicated to translating research into effective programs, practices, and policies – but for many prevention scientists, the world of policymaking and prevention advocacy is unknown territory.
If you are interested in learning from others who do this work, please join the Society for Prevention Advocacy Committee for a townhall-style discussion with four panelists who have extensive experience educating and advocating for prevention with state and local policymakers.
Each panelist will share lessons they have learned through their own advocacy efforts as well as concrete steps for how prevention scientists at all career stages can engage local and state policymakers to promote effective prevention.
There will also be an opportunity for audience members to ask the panelists questions and engage in discussion with one another.
