About this event


The Annual Minnesota Prevention Program Sharing conference provides learning, networking and skill-building opportunities to enhance alcohol, tobacco, and other drug misuse (ATOD) prevention efforts. By sharing effective prevention strategies and programs, presenters and participants learn from one another in this exemplary, two-day learning community.

This year's conference theme is Growing Hope: The Power of Primary Prevention. Why hope? Countless communities, agencies, and individuals come together to do this challenging work year after year despite numerous challenges and obstacles. When stakeholders work together, hope, and success, can grow. Join MPRC in Duluth to share, learn, and GROW a healthy future for all Minnesotans.
