PAAS: Promoting Equity Through Culturally Competent Prevention

Prevention Action Alliance established the Prevention Action & Advocacy Summit (PAAS) to provide education and understanding around emerging issues in prevention. The summit educates, empowers and advocates for solutions in prevention.

This year, on May 20, our virtual PAAS will address racism, its impacts on social determinants of health and how prevention should be part of the solution. The summit will provide Ohio’s prevention professionals and stakeholders a space to learn, have conversations, share resources and serve as a call-to-action for change that is culturally competent, just and equitable. Join us for a day filled with engagement and learn from our incredible speakers.


Join us May 20 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
