Toronto 2018: RAG Webinar

posted 22 Jun 2018, 23:23 by RAG Addiction and Prevention Rotary   [ updated 8 Sep 2018, 07:48 ]
As an outcome of the first RAG AP Global Grant, we are excited to offer a free webinar on how Rotary Clubs and Districts may get started in addiction prevention initiatives in their community.  This webinar provides an overview of how to become a member of the RAG AP and explains how to easily get started in local level prevention activities using the new Rotary Addiction Prevention Seminar Toolkit on Engaging the Community.  This Rotary Toolkit offers all the media, materials and instructional guidance needed to collaborate with leading local experts and stakeholders to implement needed community-based prevention education.

Watch this short 20 minute Webinar to learn more. 


This community-based education initiative is being launched in the United States and has been designed to easily be replicated from district to district. Piloted in New England, you may read about how leading district 7930 is promoting it here: https://portal.clubrunner.ca/50227

The initial Rotary Addiction Prevention Seminar was launched by District 7910's Rotary Club of Newton in Newton Massachusetts. This highly collaborative multi-district event brought community stakeholders together to learn about the driving forces of addiction.  A featured guest was Dr. Bertha Madras, an internationally respected public health authority on the addiction epidemic who served on the White House Commission on Combating Drug Addiction and the Opioid Crisis.  You may read about the event here: https://rotary7910.org/stories/rotarians-are-making-a-difference-with-addiction-prevention/
