The coalition hosted multiple showings and conversations about Paper Tigers, a documentary about Adverse Childhood Experiences and trauma informed schools. PREVENT! provided education and advocacy to the Board of Health regarding vaping in public places. Clark County adopted an ordinance to restrict the use of vaporizers in public places.
