NPSC Marches for Science

Earth Day
April 22, 2017

The NPSC is committed to the translation of replicated scientific findings to practice and policy.  Our composition includes scientists, practitioners, educators, clinicians, community organizations, policymakers and advocates with a wide breadth of expertise across multiple domains that affect child and adolescent development and family functioning.  We systematically engage in activities that promotes knowledge transfer in the field and educates the public and policy-makers regarding the relevance of prevention science in improving the overall health of individuals, families and communities. In doing so, the implementation and scaling of proven, evidence-based practices and policies promise to reduce exposure to adverse conditions and attenuate their negative consequences, in effect, preventing the development of mental, emotional, behavioral and physical problems downstream.  As such, we are proud to be in alignment with the March for Science and encourage our affiliates and members to support this international nonpartisan movement in an effort to protect science for all!
