Kent County Regional Prevention Coalition, 2021
When COVID 19 arrived and prevented us from meeting in person, the coalitions quickly leaned into creative and innovative ways to get messaging to parents and partners. The Kent County Prevention Coalition knew how important connection is for all of us, so, they relied on the technology at hand and began what they thought might be a brief placeholder – a podcast. Through this podcast series, the Kent County Prevention Coalition checked in weekly with prevention partners to see how they continued to deliver services. Over a year later, they continue to host a weekly interview. Through the podcast, they have listened, learned, and laughed with so many wonderful and wise colleagues. The field of prevention is rich with talented, dedicated and committed folks who are working incredibly hard to make a difference in our communities, and the Kent County Prevention Coalition expresses immense gratitude for the opportunity to work with such amazing individuals.
Now that we are emerging from COVID-19, the Kent County Prevention Coalition is calling this podcasting project, Building Connections. This will be a chance to continue to shine the light on all of the amazing prevention work taking place in RI!
