The Great Lakes Panel focuses its efforts in three broad areas – Information/Education, Research Coordination, and Policy Coordination. Each focus area is supported through a committee comprised of Great Lakes Panel members with relevant interests and expertise.
The Information/Education Committee facilitates the coordination of ANS information/education (I/E) activities conducted in the Great Lakes region; builds partnerships between the various stakeholders involved in ANS I/E efforts; and promotes the development and delivery of consistent messages regarding ANS prevention and control.Click to expand I/E documents collapse
