Community Leadership Training

CDC grantees from the University of Wisconsin and Denver Public Health conducted a Community Leadership Training in Madison, WI July 12-14, 2016. Nine teams* from tribes and tribal serving organizations participated in the training. The goal of the training was to prepare the teams to implement alcohol screening and brief intervention and CHOICES in their communities in order to prevent alcohol-exposed pregnancies.  The teams are receiving additional training and technical assistance over the next year from the grantee staff to support their efforts.  A second Community Leadership training for a new cohort will take place in Denver, CO, October 19-21, 2016.

*The 9 teams (of 3 individuals each) are:

  • Grand Portage Reservation (Minnesota)
  • White Earth Reservation (Minnesota)
  • Tanana Chiefs Conference (Alaska)

  • Nisqually Indian Tribe (Washington state)
