The NPSC engages in translational and transformative activities at all levels to exert a positive impact on individuals, families and communities. Much of our work is developed within and among these three interrelated committees. For more information about a committee or to get involved, please contact the appropriate committee chair listed below.
This committee’s role, in support of NPSC’s mission, is to effectively frame and communicate prevention science knowledge and best practices for adoption by decision-makers, practitioners, and the general public.
This is accomplished through activities targeted to specific audiences that promote the uptake of prevention science with the goal to inform knowledge, attitudes, and actions.
