                           Community Engagement and other drugs - in wisconsin; LOTS of folks don't think alcohol is a drug
                           forum                    and our language needs to be consistent. NOW for the question at hand;
                                                    first i need clarification on the objectives - i'm a little confused by the
                                                    Health equity objective - do you want to improve access for minorities;

                                                    improve access one goal followed by workforce development and does
                                                    that mean improving the prevention/intervention/treatment workforce OR
                                                    improving program access/delivery to our workforce; improve access for
                                                    anyone and for prevention/intervention/treatment or what. long story for
                                                    what is written above; the only one that approaches an objective is
                                                    reduce drug-related deaths - and is this deaths from illicit drugs or all
                                                    drugs; including alcohol. i'm going to assume that your objectives will
                                                    relate to tobacco and alcohol deaths/injuries/health harm as well as other
