Prevention funding continues to remain vulnerable, and it is more important than ever that prevention advocates work together to highlight the importance of community prevention. The American Public Health Association, PolicyLink, Prevention Institute, Public Health Institute and Trust for America's Health invite you to join in a discussion on key strategies, tools and resources that communities can use to elevate the success of community prevention efforts and to educate legislators on the importance of maintaining resources for community prevention and wellness. Please join us for this interactive Web Forum.

The Web Forum will:

  • Provide a brief summary of the prevention and wellness provisions of the Affordable Care Act;
  • Discuss the latest national developments from Capitol Hill and Washington DC;
  • Share evidence, tools and strategies to lift up community prevention success stories; and
  • Discuss legislative outreach tools and messages to use during the August recess to educate leaders and decision makers.

Special Guest Speaker:

Adrienne Hallett, Professional Staff, United States Senate Committee on Appropriations, Labor/HHS Subcomittee
