An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure
- Benjamin Franklin
Join us as we shape a national prevention agenda! We will place prevention at the center of debates on how to address trauma, poverty, violence, inequality, disadvantage and injustice. Our work to form a Congressional Prevention Policy Caucus promises to give prevention science a platform at the Federal, State, and Municipal levels.

Annual HIDTA Prevention Summit!
Advancing Substance Use Prevention in HIDTA Communities: Standards, Strategies, and Support
The NPSC role in this summit was consistent with our mission to encourage an understanding and acceptance by public and private sectors of the evidence accumulated by Prevention Science and related fields, thus leading to policies that enable wide-scale adoption and implementation of effective strategies by community and child/adolescent-serving systems (e.g., education, child welfare, juvenile justice) for improving mental, behavioral, physical and community health. During this workshop, we discussed (1) the evidence-based principles and practices generated by the field of prevention science, (2) the implementation process involving actions needed to foster conditions necessary to successfully implement and sustain new programs and innovations, (3) lessons learned and practical challenges in the use of implementation science, and (4) applying key findings from the science to make sound economic investments in prevention.
