Pillars of Pr
evention Award 

Our work with Ventura County Behavioral Health (VCBH) Department, Alcohol & Drug Programs - Prevention Services led to some exciting, real-world results.  Helping the community is our best reward, but we have also been honored with the Pillars of Prevention 2009 Award.  We have worked with VCBH since 2006 on numerous applied research/evaluation activities related to alcohol and drug prevention.  Our GIS mapping project (see article above), Place of Last Drink publications, and Social Host Ordinance evaluation efforts assisted VCBH in their prevention planning and measurement activities countywide.  (Pictured: Kristen and Julie with Dan Hicks of VCBH, Alcohol & Drug Programs - Prevention Services.)
