PreventionFIRST! - new name & refocused mission of the Coalition for a Drug-Free Cincinnati
The Coalition for a Drug-Free Greater Cincinnati has been an integral part of substance abuse prevention in Greater Cincinnati since its founding in 1996. While the organization will continue its work, it recently expanded its mission to promote substance abuse prevention as a lifetime choice. To help better identify its new focus, Coalition for a Drug-Free Greater Cincinnati also recently changed its name, to PreventionFIRST!. Here to discuss the changes are PreventionFIRST! President and CEO Mary Haag and Board of Trustee Members Larry Williams and Melinda Brown. Larry Williams is retired vice-president for Talbert House, and Melinda Brown is with Stayin'? Alive, a PreventionFIRST! coalition member.
