Objectives include providing training for those new to prevention as well as those leaders who have been working in prevention for many years. Another objective is to provide information about illegal and legal drug trends in Iowa, as well as specific information on trends and strategies regarding marijuana, CBD, Kratom, and vaping nicotine. The conference will include the new trends in availability of alcohol and strategies to address those, and preliminary data from the increasing alcohol outlet density in Iowa and related harms.
