About the Summer Series: PreventConnect is pleased to announce its second annual “Summer Series” of web conferences designed specifically for State Sexual Assault Coalitions and State Public Health Departments. The CDC has contracted PreventConnect to develop these web conferences and eLearning tools to assist your organizations in your role to build the capacity of RPE grantees within your own states.
The topics were developed based on input provided through a survey conducted by the National Sexual Violence Resource Center (NSVRC) last year and input from the CDC, the National Alliance to End Sexual Violence and RPE Council. This series of web conferences is a results of close coordination among the CDC, NSVRC and Prevention Connection to provide technical assistance in the implementation of RPE cooperative agreements.
