Missouri Kids Count

Last week, Missouri Kids Count (MKC) launched the new Missouri KIDS COUNT website in conjunction with a new tool for data and reports, Missouri KIDS COUNT Data, from the Office of Social & Economic Data Analysis (OSEDA) - University of Missouri. We hope that you will utilize these two web sites often and please share these new resources with partners and colleagues. With your help, it is hoped a continuous network will develop and expand to share MO KIDS COUNT data, information and resources.


Trained Diabetes Personnel in Missouri Schools (Cade’s Law)-Webinar
This webinar is designed as a resource for school nurses throughout the state. The purpose of this webinar is to provide school nurses in Missouri with a framework for training staff as Trained Diabetes Personnel (TDP). House Bill 675, passed and signed into law in 2013, provides an opportunity for Missouri public schools to train staff to assist in the care of students with diabetes while at school. Although this is optional for schools and districts, the intent is to help support student learning by ensuring safe and effective diabetes management for students at school

Free Online Training Series on Child Sex Trafficking



NEW! The annual Substance Abuse Prevention Conference hosted by ACT Missouri is held in the Fall at Lodge of the Four Seasons at Lake of the Ozarks. Participants are able to attend a variety of breakouts and network with other coalition members from across Missouri.

The Prevention Conference is a time for preventionists, community members, educators, and professionals from across Missouri to come together to learn and network. There are many local experts who are willing to share their expertise with our communities.  In past years, specialized tracks of workshops were offered on the latest technology, resources, and coalition building techniques including optional pre-conference sessions on various topics.

A highlight of the Conference is awarding the Champion for Change of Prevention, Milestone Award, and Coalition of the Year award.
