About Us

Prevention Solutions@EDC is operated by Education Development Center (EDC), a global nonprofit that advances lasting solutions to improve education, promote health, and expand economic opportunity.

For nearly 20 years, EDC operated SAMHSA’s Center for the Application of Prevention Technologies, a national training and technical assistance center dedicated to strengthening the nation’s prevention workforce.

Prevention Solutions@EDC builds on this rich experience. We are run and staffed by a multidisciplinary team with expertise in epidemiology, strategic planning, program design and development, communications, and evaluation, and experience helping local practitioners build their own expertise in these areas.
