CADCA Forum 2019

Several members of Loudoun County CSB and the Prevention Alliance of Loudoun (PAL) where fortunate enough to attend the CADCA 2019 Forum. The lecture series allowed us to further build our prevention knowledge and make new connections with other prevention professionals from across the Country.

As a proponent of Data & Evaluation, we really found the lectures providing additional research and data on subjects such as marijuana and e-cigarette/Vaping to be incredibly helpful. These subjects have historically been lacking information, and although additional research and information is still required, the available information provided through the forum was vital in furthering our prevention efforts. I was also excited to hear about the coming addition of questions surrounding vaping to the national Survey on Drug Use and some other large surveys. These questions will be extremely helpful in evaluating our efforts in preventing e-cigarette and vape usage.

I speak for my whole Loudoun County CSB team when I say how grateful we are for the opportunity to attend the Forum and meet so many wonderful professionals in our field.
