Past Events & Projects

Lewis County Opioid Summit

March 28, 2024, Centralia College

Thank you for joining us at the Lewis County Opioid Summit on March 28! A fantastic turnout with over 180 attendees! The summit brought together experts, community members, service providers, and individuals affected by the opioid epidemic to engage in discussions, share experiences, and learn about innovative solutions.


Special thanks to the planning committee and our sponsors, including the Chehalis Tribe, Wellpoint, CHOICE Regional Health Network, DSHS, HRSA, Gather Church, Lewis County Public Health & Social Services, Centralia Prevention Coalition, and Washington State Health Care Authority. The work will continue through the Lewis County Opioid Taskforce. Follow for updates.

An Introduction to Positive Community Norms: What’s In Your Green Arrow?

January 26, 2023, Zoom

We hosted this dynamic and interactive virtual workshop to unpack how to increase youth health and safety by focusing on the norms we want to grow instead of the behaviors what we are trying to prevent. Jason Anderson of The Montana Institute reframed our prevention goals with the Science of the Positive.
