Description: 

Coalitions continually face challenges of quantifying value and achieving sustainability. Having a reliable method for estimating benefits and costs can serve as the basis for demonstrating the savings in public spending associated with implementing environmental strategies aimed at reducing the burdens of substance abuse. This course will demonstrate how two coalitions in Tennessee utilized existing research along with local data to conduct a cost benefit study for their local communities. The course is recommended for advanced coalition professionals and evaluators.
