You have data you want and need to share with your community. How can you present it in a way that is meaningful? Infographics are used extensively in the field of Prevention as an effective way to share data and prevention messages with communities and stakeholders. This training will walk through creating an infographic on a prevention topic of your choice, from beginning to end. We will explore: (1) tools for creating infographics; (2) types of messaging approaches in prevention and how they connect with strategies; (3) obtaining and graphically representing data; and, (4) creating different types of graphics and diagrams. As part of producing a final product, you will also “pilot test” your finished infographic with each other and with at least three people outside of class. This training spans two weeks, and is an instructor-led, primarily online training. In addition to the online component, you will attend a 1.5-hour webinar.

Evaluation for Environmental Prevention Programs

Whether you are working with a community coalition to reduce underage drinking, DWI or implementing a meaningful program designed to make a difference at the community level, documenting your impact keeps you and your team motivated and engaged. As preventionist, you do not need to know all the technical parts of evaluation, but it is important to have an understanding of the data the evaluator is using. Participants will review process and outcome data as well as examining different tools to collect data.  This training will connect the dots between plans, goals, outcomes, indicators and the strategies used to achieve and measure positive change in your community.  Importantly, how to use evaluation findings to adjust strategies and programing will also be discussed. The training will incorporate interactive activities and small group work in an online format.
