Location: University of Hawaii at Manoa Biomedical Sciences (BioMed) Building, Room C-104 1960 East West Rd

Two presentations by:
- Dr. Daniel Galanis, PhD, Epidemiologist in the Emergency Medical Services & Injury Prevention System Branch (EMSIPSB) of the State of Hawaii Department of Health, will be presenting on EMSIPSB data resources relating to substance use.
- John Valera, AICP, Alcohol and Drug Abuse Division of the State of Hawaii Department of Health, will be presenting on the WITS data system.
The SEOW has been providing epidemiological services to and working with the Alcohol and Drug Abuse Division (ADAD) which is a part of Hawaiʻi Department of Health, from 2006 to present. The SEOW has evolved to target underage drinking and substance use due to the focus of the federal grant from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA): Strategic Prevention Framework Partnerships for Success (SPF-PFS). The SEOW is a partnership between ADAD, University of Hawaiʻi Office of Public Health Studies, and interested community stakeholders.
