You believe in the value of prevention. You know that we can reduce costly preventable diseases by targeting tobacco use, obesity, sedentary lifestyles and poor nutrition. And you know that place matters — that transforming where we work, go to school, and receive care goes a long way to changing behaviors.

In Jim’s memory, we established the Jim Long Fund, supporting policy work at the state and national level. The first Jim Long Policy Fellow, Danielle Schramm, advocated with leadership at the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs for changes in the federal law that would allow Veterans Hospitals to have tobacco-free campuses.
Thank you to the many donors to the Jim Long Fund for furthering our work in healthy legislative policies and nurturing the careers of young professionals working at the intersection of public health and public policy.
Help support the next generation of public policy advocates by contributing to the Jim Long Fund.

Over the course of the past 17 years, we at Prevention Partners have continued to fulfill our value of creating workforces and leaders dedicated to prevention. More than 160 interns have brought valuable skills, energy, and capacity to our organization, and have greatly contributed to our success. And while we’re proud to have invested our time into changing their lives, we have not had the funds to reward their contributions.
We recognize the limit that a lack of financial support puts on young professionals. In order to remove the barrier of a 12-week unpaid internship, we have set a goal of establishing an increasing number of intern stipends, beginning with one summer stipend in 2016. To achieve this initial funded intern position (and for this first position to enhance our ability to raise resources to continue to support future interns), we have launched an official campaign for our Intern Fund.
We need your help to shape the lives of other young professionals and make the Prevention Partners Internship Program as strong and sustainable as possible. By providing generous financial support, you will help us acquire top notch young professionals who will assist in our mission to transform organizations and ultimately change lives.
