National Prevention Network Conference

Vermonters shared information and substance abuse prevention strategies with participants from other states at the 30th National Prevention Network (NPN) Conference held this year in mid-September in Anaheim, California. The conference highlighted the latest scientific research in the prevention field, addressing alcohol, tobacco, cannabis, and opiate dependence disorders. NPN provided a forum for prevention professionals, researchers, and federal partners to share best practices and promising evaluation results in order to integrate research into prevention practice.
