Prevention Profiles Take Five: Then and Now

This episode of Prevention Profiles: Take Five kicks off our fourth season in a special way. We’ve invited five previous guests to come back on the show, listen to one of the questions we asked them in their initial interview, and then reflect on how that response may have changed over the past two or three years. Each of them also identifies a call to action for professionals working to prevent drug misuse among college students.
