Rural Substance Abuse Prevention Conference (RuralPrevConf)
|Event Date/Time: May 23, 2007||End Date/Time: May 25, 2007|
Based on this literature, the proposed conference is organized to provide a rigorous introduction to the Strategic Prevention Framework, and address four concerns:
· Exploration of the growing rate of youth substance abuse in rural communities, which often exceeds that of urban centers.
· Planned strategies to address the lack of adequate resources to address the problem in many rural southern communities.
· Understanding of the differential influence of individual risk or protective factors associated with rural substance use.
· Exploration of science-based prevention strategies that address the unique cultural values of rural ethnic youth.
