Shift’s team members, Dr. Deinera Exner-Cortens and Lianne Lee presented the Alberta Healthy Youth Relationships Strategy at the Society for Prevention Research conference in San Francisco, CA. The topic of this conference was “Using Prevention Science to Promote Health Equity and Improve Well-being”. Their presentations addressed the development and implementation of a province-wide strategy along with the challenges and successes to date. The conference was filled with many people including prevention science researchers, educators and practitioners, as well as policy-makers and funders. Through conferences and events in the area of prevention, Shift’s presence helps us stay well-informed about current research findings, and gives us the opportunity to share Alberta’s experience in primary violence prevention with scholars, practitioners, and funders from around the world.
