CADCA’s Geographic Health Equity Alliance (GHEA) has partnered with CADCA’s Youth Leadership Initiative and Nuestras Voces (Our Voices) Network to present a two-part webinar series, “Youth Engagement in Tobacco Control.” The first webinar was held on Monday, January 11, 2021, from 3-4:30 pm EST and presented by CADCA Trainers Nigel Wrangham and Rebekah Jin. Grounded in the CDC’s Youth Engagement in Tobacco Prevention and Control Best Practices User Guide and led by CADCA’s professional youth trainers, the webinar outlined a foundation for an authentic and equitable youth program focused on achieving population-level change in tobacco and other substance misuse prevention efforts.
