Free Primary Prevention for Change Training: A Community Approach to Promoting Health, Safety, and Equity
Prevention Institute is offering FREE training opportunities focused on understanding and analyzing the community factors that shape health, safety, and equity. Through these trainings, participants are able to understand the underlying causes of illness and injury and then craft comprehensive approaches to transform unhealthy and unsafe environments. The training emphasizes practical information, skills and tools. Trainers will introduce participants to primary prevention initiatives, a “two steps to prevention” approach, the THRIVE community health framework, the Spectrum of Prevention, and examples of successful practices and policies.
