Training Participants share their learning and experience with us... 

“Being new to prevention, one thing I learned…was the etiology model. I plan to use that in my work when determining risk and protective factors.” 

“One thing I learned is the importance of each step in the community-based implementation process.” 

"Stating clear objectives of what I expect to get as a result of a meeting . I have seen that done but have no objectives myself. I now realize how valuable that is"
