Town Hall Meeting

This event is an open forum for community members, Coalition participants and school officials to attend and receive the Bach-Harrison Prevention Needs Assessment survey results.

Provided to grades 6, 8, 10 and 12, the Bach-Harrison PNA is designed to measure alcohol, tobacco and other drug (ATOD) use, antisocial behavior and levels of risk and protection. The results are used to determine the needs of the youth population in Glen Cove, as well as track the effectiveness of drug prevention activities in the City.

Information from the survey is used by a variety of professionals within the Glen Cove community to enhance existing service for youth to strengthen protective factors, while targeting the influence of risk factors through a series of environmental strategies.

Conducted by Dr. Bernard Gorman, this presentation looks at the most current Bach-Harrison Prevention Needs Assessment results for Glen Cove students comparatively with both past results and the eight state norm.  Dr. Gorman provides recommendations for future prevention activities based on the survey results.

Coalition Committee Chairs provide a full report of current activities as well as future activities planned based on the needs assessment data.
