Has COVID-19 curtailed your prevention efforts? Have you been reassigned to other projects due to little or no activity in your prevention programs? How do preventionists manage during times of uncertainty? Well, the Strategic Prevention Framework and the Environmental Strategies are more than planning and community based models. They are the prevention tools to overcoming challenges! In fact, they are the prevention approach to creating opportunities in the mist of chaos.

Learning Objectives

1) Learn to review their local action plans and State plans to find “just in case” challenges

2) Learn to seek opportunities that are COVID friendly

3) Review their target populations and partnerships for possible expansion to combat COVID limitations
