Kelli Knapp, CCSAP Board Chair, Project Director Moneka Midgette and Dare Oliver, CCSAP media coordinator, are in the Washington, D.C., area this week to join approximately 3,000 substance abuse prevention specialists and advocates from throughout the country for CADCA’s (Community Anti-Drug Coalitions of America’s) 27th Annual National Leadership Forum.
CADCA’s Forum will cover a wide range of topics – everything from how to prevent prescription drug abuse and the abuse of synthetic drugs and marijuana to how to create tobacco-free environments and develop policies to reduce underage drinking.
The coalition representatives will hear from several federal leaders including Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) who will receive CADCA’s National Leadership Award at the event. CCSAP will also meet with U.S. representatives and senators at the Forum’s Capitol Hill Day event.
CADCA’s National Leadership Forum, the nation’s largest training event for community prevention leaders, treatment professionals and researchers, is taking place at the Gaylord National Hotel and Convention Center Feb. 6-9.
