DFC National Coalition Academy Week 3

DFC Project Coordinator Athila Lambino and Other Substance Abuse (OSA) Organization rep Mary K. Bier joined classmates from coalitions in Nevada, Washington, Colorado, Utah, Arizona, Wyoming, Montana, Texas, and North Carolina at the National Guard Museum in Dupont, WA once again for the third and final round of the National Coalition Academy, as led by CADCA trainers Dave Shavel and Teresa Bishop.  The week-long training took place from 9/9 to 9/13, and focused on topics such as policy advocacy, and sustainability.  All coalitions were assigned “homework,” which includes creating products such as a community assessment, logic model, strategic and action plans, evaluation plan, and sustainability plan by December 2013.

We’re excited about creating these products with our DFC coalition so that we can move a few steps closer to implementing our strategies for reducing the harm associated with substance use in South San Francisco!

To my coalition colleagues in WRCTC Cohort 6:  
It has been an incredible pleasure and privilege learning and working with all of you in these past 1-3 weeks.  We share many of the same obstacles and challenges in both our professional and personal lives, and yet it is our passion for the work that we do that continues to drive us forward.  I wish all of you the best of luck in working with your coalition in your community, and I’m eager to reconnect with all of you at the CADCA National Leadership Forum in February 2014 to share stories of our progress.  Please stay in touch!
Love, Peace, and Respect for the work you do.
-Athila Lambino
