This webinar is part of the free #2020 EPIC-Network Webinar Series. As part of the transition from an in-person conference to a free, and online, event series, this webinar is open for anyone to attend. After the event ends, its recording will be posted to this page. So even if you cannot attend, you can still engage with its content.

This session will cover some tools and resources that may be of use to programs, faculty, students, and local government/community leaders involved in EPIC programs.
