Underage Drinking Prevention: Sustainability through Policy and Practice Change
As you move into the last quarter of the fiscal year, and start making plans for your final year of funding, we know that sustainability is a priority for everyone. In addition to working towards sustaining the programs being implemented by your coalition, BSAS would like all UAD funded coalitions to select a new policy and/or practice change to prioritize over the next 15 months.
To support these efforts, MassTAPP and BSAS hosted a day-long workshop. The main speaker for this event is D.J. Wilson (Tobacco Control Director and Public Health Liaison, Massachusetts Municipal Association). This was an opportunity to learn more about policy/practice change as a sustainability strategy, to hear from communities that have successfully implemented these changes, and to think about how the expectation for policy/practice change will be met in your own community.
