About The Podcast

The Power of Prevention Podcast
We are hoping to make your lives a little better with these inspirational stories about substance misuse prevention. We share our best interviews with people who are working tirelessly in their professions, their families and their communities to stop something unwanted from happening—in this case the misuse of alcohol, tobacco, and other substances.

Our host, Christin D’Ovidio, is a seasoned public health communicator at JSI Research & Training Institute, Inc. where she researches, develops and designs health behavior campaigns to impact individuals and communities. When she’s not “digging in” to motivate change for public or climate health, she’s busy digging in the dirt in her garden and motivating and raising her two children in Bow, NH.
