Webinar: Advocacy 101: Preparing for the 2019 Advocacy Summit
September 18 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EDTFree
The SOPHE Policy & Resolutions Committee came to a consensus that the public health impact of opioid misuse, prevention, and advocacy is a key issue for health educators in 2019. This particular webinar focuses on core advocacy skills that students, faculty members, and all public health professionals can use to advocate for public health priorities (i.e. opioid prevention) at the state and local level. This webinar will provide faculty and student members very “action-oriented” steps so that they are not merely learning about policy advocacy strategies but acquiring specific guidance and examples of how policy changes can be initiated in their own work. It will provide examples of how participants can inspire their peers to action and get decision-makers to change policy.
