The Colorado Higher Education Prevention Summit will allow collegiate prevention teams to learn more about cannabis trends statewide and nationally, as well as increase knowledge about evidence informed prevention practices.
The Retail Marijuana Education Campaign, in collaboration with the Coalition of Colorado Campus Alcohol and Drug Educators (CADE) invites prevention teams from across the state to a one day training at Metropolitan State University of Denver in Denver, CO.
All campuses are welcome to attend to learn from other institutions and to share successes. The Colorado Higher Education Prevention Summit will provide lunch and a toolkit for all attendees, as well as a Program in a Box to support ongoing cannabis education and intervention efforts.
This event is most likely to influence these groups.
Let others know you are coming!
There is no fee to register for the summit, though we request attendees register for accurate meal and material counts. Lunch will be provided, and attendees will receive a toolkit and resources to support on going prevention efforts on campus. You will need to log in to your NASPA profile to register- if you need help registering, please email [email protected]
