Deanna welcome oh the floor is all yours please proceed
with your presentation thank you hello my name is Deanna plazas and I’m the
director of the generics program at set by Norcross Georgia
I’m a certified prevention specialist I have been working in the prevention
field since 2010 thank you for joining me today as I present my work of
prevention of prescription drug misuse among the Latino community a program
called generates that I have for the past six years which is part of the step
up probation department now let me share briefly about what is septa so set by is
a nonprofit organization and behavior excuse me
health agency which is specialized in mental health addiction treatment and
emotional problems as well as providing prevention services including dual
programs such as mix to the prevention Clubhouse and nutritional programs so
now let’s talk a little bit about generics so generates is an initiative
to prevent prescription drugs misuse and abuse in the community this program
founded by the Georgia Department of Behavioral Health and developmental
disabilities aims to educate the public about the proper use of prescription
drugs proper storage and the disposal drugs
generates is a response to the growing epidemic of prescription drug abuse
among Jews and young adults in Georgia there were three counties chosen to work
with this program in the state of Georgia KATUSA early
and we Ned County which is the county where I work for so in 2013 Georgia
Department of Behavioral Health and developmental disabilities which is
called DB HDD conducted a study in Georgia about the use and misuse of
prescription medication the results show that Georgia is one of the principal
estates exported prescription medication in the country one of the main routes
used to transport this medication is they interstate 85 which passes through
Wynette County also the report showed that Hispanic community was at the
lowest awareness of the problem and was for that reason that DB HDD reached out
to said as a resource to begin an awareness strategy to help the Latino
community especially because we Ned has the largest Hispanic community in
Georgia this initiative is started with 4 out of 12 cities in Wynette County at
the table and your screen you can see the population of we need County and the
four cities we started the program on 2013 which were laundry Lawrenceville
Duluth Norcross and Lilburn so DB HDD and feta follow the method of Samsa the
strategic prevention framework or spear to check the community readiness and
find the best strategies to work with Gwynedd county this method uses a
five-step process known to promote youth development reduce risk taking behaviors
bill assessing resilience improving problem behaviors across the lifespan
sustainability and cultural competence are the base of every step of the
strategic prevention framework so this model requires to sexta matically as
elder prevention needs based on epidemiological data build our
prevention capacity develop a strategic plan implement effective
community prevention program policies and practices and finally ever lay the
air force for outcomes so to gather information about Georgia and we need
County specifically we used six Spanish focus groups and some national and state
data death needs assessment found that Hispanics in Gwinnett County was at the
lowest level of community readiness given us a number one no awareness at
all results show lack of a warn is regarding the problem of prescription
drug misuse and abuse and lack of knowledge of the proper storage and
disposal sites in parents when naive to the problem also this process helped us
to identify intervening variables in contributing factors combinations to
work for so one of the intervening variables was social access with three
contributing factors first one was a call to action for state storage and
disposal the second one access an information to lack of disposal site and
third an increase awareness among parents the other intervening variable
that we found it was perception of risk with contribute factor of education on
the health risks associated with prescription drugs misuse and abuse so original proposal included several
strategies that have since been deleted initially we plan to implement local
take that events and community activities which will increase community
participation as well as provide a better platform for information
dissemination and prevention activities we carefully promote to local take-back
events occurring three months apart but were unable to engage community members
at either event it was clear to us at that point that this strategy definitely
was not appropriate because of a community’s low level of awareness so
after comparing with our technical assistance provider we decided to
abandon the strategy entire focusing on time and resources on our
awareness campaign so the logic model that you see right now on your screen is
the new one actually so you can see the access or pharmacy back campaign and
social access that one year’s campaign so because the Hispanic community was a
social low Warners level it was decided that designing strategies to
intentionally overlap will create maximum impact we change as I mention at
the logic models we show it the three newest studies we will implement first
as I mentioned before a pharmacy back campaign the second was that social axis
awareness campaign and a third one that you see and right now on your screen if
there are risk awareness campaign so or implementation strategies we design our
perception or whistle one is campaign to begin in April 2014 until December 2014
for this campaign we create a PSA for movie theatres two companies NMC and a
screen vision help us in the development messages and they’re running them into
the local Wynette County theatres beginning in June 2014 we implemented or
social access awareness campaign which included media campaign educational
interventions at Hispanic community activities social health fair a.m.
parents workshop presentations our media campaign included billboards in Spanish
newspaper advertisement running in Hispanic publications as well as radio
PSAs and interviewing airing on Hispanic various stations
finally we implemented all pharmacy by campaign in the Middle’s of July 2014
last you know – or pharmacies run out of printer packs so let’s talk about our
pharmacy by campaign the idea of this strategy came from the evidence-based
program math sticker shock campaign but instead of the speakers actually we
decided to provide backs to the pharmacies we noticed that many
independent pharmacist distributed their medication on black/white bags in some
said advertising so we thought we could use that space to help educate the
public about our campaign each pharmacy at the beginning get a packet with
included which included a presentation later a letter from the Georgia Attorney
General a sample of the bag a participation form in a version
evaluation form which was collected at the end of the cycle that was every
three months from July 2014 to October 2016 we deliver a 70 9600 bilingual box
that means English and Spanish only support of social awareness access
awareness campaign or media campaign specifically set us to reach as many
Latinos as possible through newspapers billboards
in radio stations so let me talk a little bit about results so we have moon
respond eco which is the biggest actually newspaper here in the state of
Georgia I mean this panic of print seventy one thousand five hundred copies
per week in the in the state of Georgia and they have around two hundred
thousand eight hundred ninety seven readers in Georgia we had the partisan
host magazine 30,000 copies per month around ninety thousand readers in the
state of Georgia dia de salud magazine it was a every three months publication
thirty thousand copies every three months around ninety thousand readers in
Georgia also miss Panico they have a digital website with approximately per
month they have 1 million 500 visitors but in the in the state of Georgia
unique visitors computer they have 350,000 per month
also they have a mobile application with approximately
with a million 250,000 visitors but in the state of Georgia per month
unique visitors is around two hundred eighty five thousand another newspaper
helped us it was a less stereo which has approximately 20,000 readers per month
also we have in whoever Georgia which has another big newspaper here in
Georgia with a circulation of 20,000 copies but their frequency is bi-weekly
every other Thursday is distributed in 32 cities in Georgia
approximately they have 300,000 readers also we have running formación which is
a mobile application and we used to do Wednesdays every around 30 minutes to an
hour life program yeah average monthly listeners were 30,000 people
we had a patron relay station which was at that moment the biggest radio station
in Spanish with approximately 168 600 listeners to the radio also we have
radio Vida which has a coverage of 96 counties in the state of Georgia and
finally we had a billboard reaching more than 10,000 people in we made only only
the coming in Winnett the digital message appear every 10 seconds so the
total response that we had excuse me was forty-four thousand six hundred in four so the other part of the social access
awareness campaign were parents workshops so our parents workshops were
extremely successful during that time during 2014 to 2016 we use a
spanish-language PowerPoint presentation to educate community members about the
dangers of prescription drug abuse among youth and about weights parents can help
prevent such abuse also the proper storage and disposal of medication
ticket typically these presentations took place in local schools or churches
this presentations were for Spanish speakers
only excuse me the presentation was approximately 45 to
60 minutes in duration followed by Langley questions in answer
sessions we provided with a flyer to the person on charge at the school or at the
church to recruit participants so the flyer mentioned at the time our location
charlie community specifically age in this sky in this case only adults so for
that reason within a provide childcare service we usually provide a small snack
also pre and post-tests where administrator prior to and after the
presentations to assess the impact of the presentations of participants
knowledge and perceptions a total of 195 workshops were presented with almost 300
participants during that time so our campaign educational interventions aim
or health fairs so during this educational intervention we pass out
flyers with information about proper restoration disposal of the prescription
drugs also we had the opportunity to increase awareness about the issue
through answering questions so let’s talk about our perception of risk the
goal of our bilingual perception or Wis campaign was to educate parents about
the dangers of prescription drugs and to invite them to keep them in locked
cabinets during 2014 we ran a 15-second PSA to NCM in radio theatres 36 weeks 18
screens and through a screen vision in a studio movie grille 12 weeks 10 screens
also we have Telemundo which is Hispanic a television network
we run nine spots Monday through Friday for two months we have a round 720,000
Spanish audience covering the whole state
we have a stake America which is a small television network we had hundreds pots
for five weeks Monday to Friday and of course we have Univision who we got 20
spots Monday to Friday in UNIMAS which is part of the Univision as well we have
twenty eight spots Monday through Friday this both channels Univision and unum
ass had seven hundred seventy six thousand four hundred twenty nine
Hispanics viewers approximately in the state of Georgia so I want to show you

Dellavedova lebedev live a punto SEPA Punto Oh Eddie hey okay so we also
develop Minister lingual documentary name prescription drugs dangerous legal
to highlight the problem of prescription drugs in the Hispanic community in
Georgia the documentary was honored by the Academy of Television Arts of
science with an Emmy Award in 2016 all right so what happened next in 2017
DB HDD in SEPA conducted a new needs assessment for Wynette County this time
we included all cities and all ethnicities one of the purpose of this
new assessment and to include all cities and ethnicities was to check the current
awareness of the issue in the Hispanic community in comparison to other
ethnicities for Disney’s assessment 12 focus groups were conducted in the
community using participants from 12 to 26 plus years old three focus group were
middle school students ages 12 to 14 three groups of high school students
ages 15 to 17 three groups of young adults ages 18 to 25 and finally three
groups of adults ages 26 and above in order to recruit participants to fliers
were created one in English and the order are linguistically and culturally
appropriate a Spanish translation also we had secondary data obtained from
different sources such as the National Survey on drug use inhale and you’d risk
behavior survey as well as information from the US bro Census Bureau I’m sorry
statewide data was garnered from the Georgia Student Health Survey local data
was taken from the Wynette County Schools and government website and also
Lake local data on prescription drugs was taken from Wynette County Georgia
Student Health Survey so let’s talk a little bit about our
secondary data so something that we found out in the secondary data was the
increase of use of prescription medication among young Hispanics
according to the tables that you see on your screen the number of young Hispanic
abusing and misusing prescription medication has been increased in the
nation in the last years so on table one on your left there is a significant
difference in substance abuse rates in us-born and foreign-born Hispanic
adolescents so if you see the non-medical use of prescription type
drugs you can see the gap for instance 3 percent of Latino adolescence born in
the United States reportedly abuse prescription drugs in 2009 compared to
2.6 percent for their foreign borns counterparts on table two and you’re
right there that is a national survey on drug use and health 2016 show the number
of Hispanics significantly increase in the last year’s the in this second
ethnicity misusing prescription drugs so continuing with our secondary data here
in Georgia according to the Georgia Student Survey the percentage of the
student reported any use of prescription drugs in the past three days while the
prevalence abuse has declined in Catoosa County it has increased in early
counting has changed little between 2012 and 2015 in Gwinnett County in Georgia
in Georgia remember KATUSA early and we need are the only ones who is using
generics for the prescription drug epidemic here in Georgia so according to the same survey actually the percentage of students that reported
the somewhat or strongly disagree that is easy to get prescription medicine
that would not prescribe for them overall prescription drug access has
reminded higher in early County and lower in Catoosa we met in the state of
Georgia now and this graphic this graphic shows the percentage of students
who somewhat or strongly agree that taking prescription medication not
prescribed for them is harmful to their health perception of harm of
prescription medication has increased among the past several years in all
counties in the state the greatest increase is seen in early County
so perception of harms remains lower than other counties and the state of
Georgia now let’s talk about opiate overdose deaths by age group in Georgia
so the majority overdose deaths from opioids in Georgia were from opioid pain
relievers opioids as you see n is around 549 followed by unknown 149 heroine 121
in a combination of opioids and heroine 81 the majority of deaths occurred among
residents 30 years of age in older though a substantial number of days were
among 20 to 24 years old with a number of 74 in 25 to 29 years old with a
number 126 so this is opioid overdose deaths by
race/ethnicity insects in the state of Georgia so the large majority of
overdose beds where among non-hispanic white with 749 followed by non-hispanic
blacks or african-americans with a number 124 s you seein in your screen
there were 19 deaths among the hispanic or latino of all races most over those
days were among males 550 as compared to females 350 the overall age adjusted
opiate overdose death rates in georgia was eight point eight percent per
100,000 people so now let’s talk about we need counting
opiate overdose dates by age in Wynette county there were a total of 75 opioid
overdose deaths in Wynette county in 2015 approximately half of which were
caused by OPRS 36 followed by heroine 14 nearly three-quarters of deaths were
among residents 30 years of age and older as you CN n your screen so now they opiate overdose dates by
race ethnicity and sex in Gwinnett County
the majority of overdose deaths were among non-hispanic whites 56 follow by
non-hispanic blacks or african-americans 10 there were five deaths among Hispanic
or Latino individuals three among Asians and what their Albany Davido identify as
a multiracial monsters were among males 55 as compared to female females
I’m sorry 20 the overall age adjusted appeals over those days creating Wynette
County was eight point four percent per 100,000 so this is Wynette County Phil
this is the number of poisoning and poison rates has been trading upward
from 2012 to 2015 so this table provides a number of
poisoning for prescription type for 2012 to 2015 as well as the poisoning rates
per 10,000 people so on table 1 on the top you’re gonna see the number of
poisoning spirit substance type and on the bottom table 2 it’s a poison rate
per substance type remember this is only we need County okay so our nice assessment resource and
intervention strategies after all these founds our campaign actually yelled some
extraordinary results on table one on the top you can show the results over
two thousand thirty minutes assessment where the community score at the lowest
level of community readiness which was level one meaning now our warnings are
all on Table two on the bottom showed every saw stroke 2017 needs assessment
where the community score a level three which signifies baked awarness which
means that a community feels that there is a local concern but there is not
immediate motivation to do anything about it
with this and mine we proceeded to look and prioritize or intervening variables
and contributing factors combination of IV CF for this process we had the
collaboration of six members of chispa’s coalition which is the Hispanic
coalition for the prevention of substance abuse in Gwinnett County
chispa’s participant first assign scores occurs for access importance impact
change ability and capacity in terms of importance
each IV CF combo was given a score that reflected how important participants
fail it was for this combination to be addressed net the score of each IDC a
combo based upon how much impact there will be a positive changes support also
the astonishing ability score based upon how likely it was that we will see a
change in this IB CF combination in the next five years
lastly they gave a score to each IV CF combination that reflected the
coalition’s capacity to affect change in this area within five years she’s past
participants then determine I’d the mean score for each IBC F combination
and read them based on scores even so our results according to the scores we
denta fide recombination of risk and protective factors in the community
first one was availability then access and social and community norms
so after discussed with of these of these three combinations will be better
to work with the community in chispa’s members and the journalistic staff
agreed to work with access with proper storage in a pub restoration sorry and
the disposal and social and community norms dude perception of perception norm
so this two strategies were chosen to address these risk factors in the
community hence model for the positive social
campaign in social access media campaign so let’s talk about our positive social
nor campaign so the positive social norm a strategy will be implemented in
Wynette county high school we wanted to change the perception of high school
students capable abuse and misuse of prescription in their own schools each
school will have personalized messages according to data collected in the
perception service with their own students and the Georgia student Health
Survey which according to the 2017 data prescription drug misuse among Wynette
County student has been declining since 2014 we started our positive social
norms campaign in 2018 and began to collect service at middle Creek High
School a total of 400 for surveys were collected from April 23rd through the
27th based on the resource of the service collected through the month of
May we work on developing the messages to you to be using the campaign and
recruiting teens for focus groups to test the Memphis
we had three Jews focus groups and one adult group for this strategy at the end
of address of 2018 we were ready to implement the campaign well but before
to post the message in the school we had to have the principal’s approval which
delayed the process three months we were finally able to post a fierce poster
with the design approved by the principal on November which is the
poster that you see right now on your screen we distributed 24 posters
throughout the school next month so for the month of February we will change the
message which will be post for eight weeks and then we administrate both
surveys to be evaluated the strategy okay so now our social access media
awareness campaign so for this new implementation plan we decided to
develop new messages that will help us to obtain the desired outcomes to reduce
availability of prescription drugs by raising awareness about prescription
drug misuse and promoting safe storage and disposal of prescription drugs all
these messages are bilingual English and Spanish and for the pharmacy bad this
time we had the opportunity to provide the messages in other Asian languages
something that we found out is when a county has a growing Asian community and
we wanted definitely to expand outreach so the next few slices I will present
the messages that are current running in our local we need newspapers and
billboards I want to mention that for the fiscal year of 2018 the estimate
media campaign was total of two million fifty thousand four hundred eighty four
individuals were rich included radio billboards TV channels and newspapers
all these English and Spanish language now you see on your screen the
billboards actually that we are running and we need County English and Spanish here our newspaper acts English and
Spanish as well this is actually two Hispanic newspapers that have been very
supported on the top you see La Vie see on with among the distribution of ten
thousand five hundred copies in grenade only and on the bottom we have in rural
Georgia with twenty thousand copies by weekly we have three hundred readers per
month in Gwinnett only so now I wanna you guys here all radio PSA for us in
Spanish sorry Austin Elvis CNN sus casas amigo so familiaris
stilettos okay spanish PSA is running in La Ceiba which
is right now one of the biggest Spanish ready station in Georgia now we are
having ninety five thousand eight hundred seventy four monthly which
Angwin eight only now I want you guys missing the in English did you know that
one out of four youth has abuse prescription drugs most of them find
them in their own homes friends and relatives be alert keep an eye on your
meds and lock them up every pill counts this message is being brought you by
said by genrich’s program at the Department of Behavioral Health and
developmental disabilities which is one of the biggest radio stations in English
here in Georgia the monthly breach of this radio station is four hundred forty
thousand hundred and sixteen only in Gwinnett County they have a mobile app
that in Gwinnett County reach nine hundred thirty four thousand two hundred
seventy six people and also they have a website
the we need a County population actually is
listen to this through the website is forty six thousand fifty six now I want
you to show you the TV do you know where your meds are kids can easily get into
unprotected medication adults have left up unattended protect your kids lock
your meds stop prescription drug abuse so our
English TV PSA which has not been possible to run in television or
American television network due to the high cost for the Spanish television we
still use in the old PSA something I would like to highlight about the media
campaign of 2017 that we are using right now is that all our media campaign
messages actually were developed by Hispanic youth and young adults to
target adults so our workshops or parents presentations so during each
presentation we still bring in printed material that parents or adults can
bring to home and talk to their families and kids about prescription drugs and
other drugs also we brought food to security prescription boxes and above
with all the promotional material a total of 107 parents including schools
parents outreach in Gwinnett County attended the prescription the
presentation during the last year our pharmacy back campaign Sodra during
the last two years our generated staff partnered with a total of 22 independent
pharmacies in Gwinnett County we had five interlude city 11 in Norco city 3
in Lawrenceville one loganville and one in swanny so we translate the pharmacy back
message in six different languages appropriate for the community that is
living in Wynette County as I mentioned before these languages included English
Spanish Korean Vietnamese older Gujarati and Hindi 118,000 bags
were distributed during 2018 fiscal year there are pharmacists are reporting
please with the pharmacy back campaign and they mentioned that they feel the
campaign is serving to increase awareness and generate discussions among
customers so now in your screen you can see the different languages
you so our pharmacy back is one of the best
known strategy nor community since the beginning of the program the Hispanics
newspapers have made several articles about this strategy that every day helps
an increase of awareness about the proper storage and disposal of medicine
so currently you can see one of actually they’re one of the last probably I can
say the articles the one of the newspaper actually create for us so finally as far over
awarness educational campaign of proper storage and this also since April of
2016 giannis staff has been helping Wynette
County law enforcement to implement the DEA a proscription national take back
day we studied created and in english and spanish press release a month before
of the event this press release is sent to different english and spanish media
outlets such as very station newspapers and TV channels so now you can see some
pictures of the collecting days and one of the articles that actually they put
it on so thank you very much for your time and
now let me see here is my contact information so let’s turn to
dokkan vienna thank you so much wonderful information that you are
providing us today now we’re going to move to the QA sessions and we are as a
reminder you may ask the any question by typing your question in the queue back
and I will present a question to Deanna we may not have time to answer all the
questions during this live event however we want to ensure we provide answer to
as many questions as we can in the event that we’ll run out of time we will take
of the text of the remaining question work internally to answer them and we’ll
email on any follow-up information so let’s proceed so now we had the first
question from soon you say Diana hi Diana
would you be willing to share a copy of your near assessment report and any
primary data survey that you use in the end you need assessment of the
communities for this project of course anything you need let me know you can
actually email me and I can help you as much as possible thank you the next
question that we had come from Jose Luis Vasquez Martinez this information on
text messages is awesome if there is any report available yes
actually I can email you guys a we later can email you the DB HDD generics page
so you can see actually all those reports not only for we need County you
can see actually Catoosa County in early County as well because as you know guys
know every community is is similar actually
as I mentioned in my presentation Wynette County has the largest Hispanic
community in the modern state of Georgia for early county and for Catoosa County
they do probably have like a 1 or 2 percent of Hispanic community so you can
sometimes you can see that probably that’s gonna help you more than my
report because you probably have less Hispanic communities than all the
counties in your area perfect now we have Lewis monkara
Chrismukkah saying can you share your PowerPoint database on your research
please sure again yes definitely we wanna try actually I think we’re gonna
chair everything that we have done plus questions and everything later yes the
next question is from nada he said I was asking about the parents presentation to
raise drugs awareness that was part of the program probably she wants to learn
more about it okay so for this Pyrrhus presentation actually we create
something very simple even with the language something that we found out in
our Hispanic community is that most people they just did elementary school
so language has to be very very basic in the same way the presentation so each
slide it has to be very simple it has to be very graphic you know and show every
single thing as possible so very detailed but I don’t know all depends of
the community that you working on sometimes I’m seeing another places like
another counties here in Georgia where the Hispanic community is now at that
low level it’s a little bit higher so all depends of that specifically
yes and the next question is from Rene Rivera Rene wants to know it will
studies me one second I’m sorry it’s Jessica to tell you but I studies or
techniques that are recommended to be discussed
Wow all the Pens of your needs assessment Jessica it’s it’s very
difficult to just implement something that you don’t know it’s gonna actually
work or not all the Pens of the needs assessment all depends definitely on the
level of readiness that was something that happened to us if you see in the
first nice assessment we had a very very lowest actually information in our
community about prescription medication so we had to start it from scratch so
that’s why we use media campaign and we use the workshops now when I’m seeing or
we were seeing the our community is a higher level yes we’re still doing the
media campaign because we’re seeing is something that is is helping us a lot
not just for those that they studied in the and recognize the problem but for
those that already recognize the problem they know the problem but if you see it
we started this time with positive social norms with kids with high school
students and that was based on or nice assessment on the second needs
assessment so every tip every strategy every technique definitely it needs to
be dependent on your needs assessment and your logic models perfect thank you the next question is
coming from every beta you see how is and where they illustrate individual
