Native American PTTC
and Ben Cort
We have a couple amazing trainings and an event scheduled during our retreat this time. Day 1 will be at MCTC with the afternoon training by Sean Bear from the National American Indian and Alaskan Native Prevention Technology Transfer Center out of the University of Iowa. This will be an overview of their services as well as a cultural competency training.
Day 2 will be at the Capitol and Department of Public Safety building. Ben Cort will be presenting to the legislators about marijuana issues that morning at the Capitol before we start our meeting. He will also join our meeting that morning at the DPS building to provide more marijuana prevention strategy training for us! Register for the Retreat HERE.
