Great Lakes PTTC

The Great Lakes Prevention Technology Transfer Center (Great Lakes PTTC) is located at the University of Wisconsin-Madison Center for Health Enhancement Systems Studies (CHESS).

We are funded by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) to provide training and technical assistance services to the substance use prevention field including professionals/pre-professionals, organizations, and others in the prevention community. Our partner in this project is Educational Development Center (EDC), a global nonprofit that advances lasting solutions to improve education, promote health, and expand economic opportunity. We will also work closely with the Great Lakes ATTC and Great Lakes MHTTC, both of which are also at the Center for Health Enhancement Systems Studies.

We serve Health and Human Services Region 5: Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio, and Wisconsin.
