The first-ever quarterly meeting of the Mid-America Technology Transfer Center (TTC) Advisory Board took place on Nov. 21 in Omaha.


The board is a joint effort between the Mid-America AddictionMental Health, and Prevention TTCs, and members are comprised of state leadership in prevention, substance abuse, and mental health; leaders of state provider associations; agency directors; and others in position to provide valuable direction.


Among the approximately 25 attendees was HHS Region 7 Administrator Kim Nelson, who suggested a joint board as a way to help the centers better align behavioral health services, share advice and experiences, and improve collaboration on shared interests and projects across Iowa, Nebraska, Missouri, and Kansas.
