Free skills training opportunity

The California Coalition for Safer Universities is hosting a free skills training by Dr. Jason Kilmer in Oakland, CA on May 13th, 2011.  This one-day event is designed to teach the skills of evidence-based motivational interviewing techniques behind the Brief Alcohol Screening and Intervention for College Students (BASICS).  The training is limited to only 70 participants, so contact the organizers now.  Contact information will be posted shortly.

Prescription Drug Take Back Day

The DEA is having another prescription medicine take-back day on April 30th.  This is a nationwide event with drop-off locations across the nation.  Your campus may be able to either host a drop-off location or provide educational materials and volunteers at established off-campus sites.  Check here for more information.  Proper disposal of unused medicines is one potentially important part of a comprehensive strategy to reduce prescription drug abuse on campuses.

Alcohol and Other Drug Conference Next week

The CSU hosted Alcohol and Other Drugs Education Conference for Institutions of Higher Education is just around the corner. Hopefully your campus is sending a delegation to share and learn about campus AOD prevention strategies. I will be there presenting on how our changing state laws affects marijuana prevention. I look forward to seeing many of you in person at the various sessions and other events planned. Check out the program here.
