Mobilizing Prevention in Minority Communities
This panel discussion will address the challenges and highlight the successes of each organizations' effort to promote prevention and foster community engagement in high risk communities throughout the Greater Cincinnati region.
Community mobilization is important when tackling substance use/misuse disorders and other health issues. Mobilizing prevention in high-risk neighborhoods means building community capacity as well as identifying and addressing strategies specific to each individual neighborhood. Promoting evidence-based prevention practices and empowering communities to implement prevention are key to improving health outcomes. This session is an opportunity to learn about the effort of UMADAOP and Interact For Health to promote prevention in minority communities throughout Greater Cincinnati.
- Identify successes and challenges in promoting prevention practices in minority neighborhoods across Greater Cincinnati
- Learn strategies and approaches to promoting evidence-based practices in minority communities
- Understand the need for continued services and the gaps in services found throughout these communities
