 2016 Dose of Prevention Award Winner Teen Health Connection, Youth Drug-Free Coalition

Participate in NMAAM’s Dose of Prevention Challenge!

Help raise awareness of the dangers of prescription(Rx) drug abuse and over-the-counter (OTC) cough medicine abuse during National Medicine Abuse Awareness Month in October, and take part in the Dose of Prevention Challenge.

Through the Dose of Prevention Challenge, we’re asking coalitions to:

  • Host an educational event (for example, a town hall meeting or a community breakfast)
  • Implement an integrated marketing and communications campaign (for example, campaign could include media outreach, PSA placements, ad buys, social media activity, etc.)
  • Hold an innovative contest (for example, a middle school essay contest that encourages youth to write about why they are inspired to live drug free)

To qualify, your coalition must implement one of the above activities. However, coalitions can increase their odds of winning by implementing multiple activities! If your coalition is implementing multiple activities, you only need to submit one form.  Please include all your activities in your submission.
