Town Hall Teleconference

Partnering to Prevent Alcohol Use During Pregnancy: A Call to Action
Tuesday, February 9, 2016
2:00–3:00 pm (EST)

On the second Tuesday of each month at 2–3 pm (ET), the CDC Office for State, Tribal, Local and Territorial Support (OSTLTS) hosts a town hall teleconference about the topic of the latest CDC Vital Signs report. These monthly reports offer recent data and calls to action on important public health topics, and the teleconferences feature lessons learned and success stories from the state, tribal, local, or territorial perspective.

The town hall teleconferences were designed to provide a forum for our nation's health officials to broaden the conversation, build momentum, and carry out evidence-based, effective programs within the public health areas covered by Vital Signs. Feedback is welcome at
