Local & Statewide Policies

This training will apply the example of major tobacco control policies in NY to focus on how local coalitions, prevention educators, and advocates have provided the education and assistance to see policies enacted locally, statewide, and even at the federal level.  We will discuss successes, lessons learned, and the impacts these policies have had on public health and prevention efforts.  We will specifically focus on how we can learn from these successes (and failures) regarding new policies regulating cannabis use and protecting our youth.

Thursday, December 1st

from 9 am - 11 am

This in-person event will be held at

Town of Orchard Park Community Activity Center

4520 California Road, Orchard Park, NY 14217-2609
