Higher Education Center offers Free Webinar and More

The recently relaunched Higher Education Center for Alcohol and Drug Misuse Prevention and Recovery has announced that those campuses that complete a brief online survey can get FREE registration for their upcoming Webinar, "Nonmedical use of prescription stimulants - What colleges need to know."  Nationally recognized researcher Dr. Amelia Arria will be the presenter.  In addition to getting access to this Webinar, the HECAOD will randomly draw one from the completed surveys to receive 20 hours of free technical assistance.  So consider completing their survey and get ready for some learning opportunities.

Also released last week was the HECAOD's first podcast: Part 1 of a conversation with Jim Lange about marijuana.  The podcasts are free and we're told they're part of a growing archive of information for the field.

Finally, the HECAOD is hosting a National Meeting August 4-6, 2015 in Columbus, Ohio.  Registration is open now.

Welcome to "so this means..."

so this means... is a research to practice blog that looks at the latest alcohol, other drug, clinical and social research and tries to find the meaning to the college prevention practitioner.  Most of the blog entries will be written by me, Jim Lange, Ph.D.  I'm the California State Coordinator for The Network, and SDSU's Coordinator of AOD Initiatives.  I also have over 15 years of alcohol and other drug abuse prevention research experience.  I've published over 40 peer review articles, and serve as a reviewer for several top journals.  Guest writers will be sought to offer other perspectives as well.
