Preparing for Prevention Week featuring Gretchen Hagenbuch, Student Assistance Regional Coordinator and Madison Dorschutz, SAP Specialist.
A positive that has come from the COVID-19 outbreak is that it’s opened our education world to many new ways to engage our students. This session will explore the relationship between SAP and Prevention and boost enthusiasm for Prevention Week.
