A renewed dedication to equity and prevention; a new Prevention Institute website to support the effort.

As 2010 begins, prevention and equity must have increased visibility and additional resources to solidify the important gains we made in the last year. To help make that happen, we've launched Prevention Institute's new website, preventioninstitute.org, to better highlight our commitment, perspective and resources, and to serve as a focal point for bringing communities, policy makers, funders and advocates together.

From a prevention perspective, we can look back on a number of successes from 2009.
