As we wind down Health Careers Awareness Month in Vermont, we wanted to spotlight careers in behavioral health, namely substance misuse prevention.
“A career in prevention is not often included in lists of health career choices. Working in the substance misuse prevention field is a great option for anyone interested in community building, education and providing support to help Vermonters to achieve health and wellness. Prevention utilizes an upstream approach which can appeal to anyone pursuing a career in public health. At Prevention Works! VT we have had connections with Southern Vermont AHEC‘s CSHIP Program interns who have been introduced to a career in substance misuse prevention.”
