PreventConnect web conference: Innovations in Measuring and Communicating Effectiveness of Sexual and Domestic Violence Prevention Efforts
Counting the number of health fairs attended or presentations given doesn't begin to tell the story of prevention work. While pre- and post-surveys capture change, are they the most compelling snapshot of your impact? How do you tell the story of your success on a limited budget? As prevention efforts gain momentum, a new host of tools and strategies have been developed to measure and communicate their effectiveness. Join us as we discuss how to tell the story of success. We will explore new ways to create data and the techniques to transform that data into a compelling prevention success story. Be ready to join the discussion by sharing your experiences and posing questions via live phone and text chat.
