About Ohio's SPF-PFS Evidence-Based Practices Workgroup

Ohio’s SPF-PFS EBP Workgroup is comprised of prevention professionals across the state of Ohio. These prevention professionals represent state agencies, local ADAMHS Boards, institutions of higher education, prevention providers, and coalitions. The SPF-PFS Workgroup works closely with the Committee for Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion during the review process to ensure that the SPF guiding principle of cultural competence is core to the work.
