Save the Date! Center Training Institute: "Translating Research to Practice: Overcoming Barriers to Implementing Effective Alcohol Abuse Prevention" 
Research demonstrates that a comprehensive, environmental approach increases success in reducing alcohol-related problems on campus and in the surrounding community. Especially during these times of financial restraint for many colleges and universities, doing more with fewer staff and resources is increasingly becoming the norm around alcohol abuse prevention.

During this two-day Training Institute, participants will build upon existing skills to learn how to implement science-based environmental prevention approaches around the following topics:

- Driving under the influence (DUI) prevention
- Off-campus parties
- On-premise alcohol-selling establishments (bars and restaurants)

Date: Tuesday-Wednesday, April 17-18, 2012
Location: Portland Marriott Downtown Waterfront, Portland, Oregon. A special $113/night rate (single or double occupancy) will be available.
Cost: The Training Institute is offered free of charge. Participants pay their own travel, lodging, and food.

Registration will open in early 2012. For more information, contact Tracy Downs
