Upcoming Training

Thursday, May 31: Conducting a Comprehensive Environmental Scan of Campus Health Culture

Kelly Hogan, MPH, Director

Eastland Suites Hotel & Conference Center (Bloomington, IL)

Register Here: http://www.eiu.edu/ihec/machform/view.php?id=88036

Topic: This presentation is designed to provide participants with insight into and guidance for conducting an environmental scan of their campus health cultures. This scan can be an incredibly useful tool for prevention specialists and administrators alike as they work toward better understanding their campus health cultures and developing informed and thoughtful strategic plans for prevention work. Conducting an environmental scan provides campuses with the foundational knowledge to choose and adapt appropriate interventions specific to their campus population, as well as gain stakeholder buy-in, and assess campus capacity for change. This presentation will provide participants with the rationale, methods, and structure to conduct their own scan on their home campuses.

Information: I will provide a quick refresher about how alcohol affects the brain. I will review some of the language used around impairment at different levels of alcohol consumption and how that impacts our educational efforts. I'll explore the relationship of alcohol consumption with sexual assault and breakdown some of the reasons this relationship is less straight forward than it looks.

Thursday, May 24th “Leveraging Peer Educators in a Public Health Approach to Alcohol and Other Drug Prevention” at 11am (CST)
Presented by: Jennifer Jacobson, Director of Wellness & Prevention and Title IX deputy for prevention
Register here
Information: As professionals in higher education, we understand that utilizing peer educators can make out work more effective.  However, that efficacy is not a given—selection of peer educators, implementing evidence-based strategies and models, and overcoming common challenges all play a role in making this investment worthwhile.  In this session, we’ll discuss strategies and considerations for how to make your peer educator program enhance a public health approach to peer education in prevention of harms related to alcohol and other drugs.
