Going the Distance with Prevention Education
Date/Time: October 15, 2020, On-Demand
Empowering Students & Meeting their Needs
Teaching drug prevention education has never been more challenging – or more essential. Prior to the pandemic, teens sat at the nexus of an opioid epidemic and targeted advertising of nicotine and vaping companies. And while we don’t yet know the impact isolation will have on the rates of teen drug misuse or abuse, we do know that avoiding these issues is not an option.
An effective approach to combating teen drug use equips students with the facts and engages them in meaningful conversation, but what does that look like in the new, socially-distanced age of learning?
Join researchers from EVERFI and the Truth Initiative in exploring the latest data and resources related to prevention education, with a special focus on digital resources that can be used to support and supplement student learning at a distance.
Attendees will receive:
- A certificate for 1 hour of professional learning
- The Red Ribbon Week Toolkit, with articles, activities, and resources to teach prevention
- Access to digital resources and ongoing training and support
