WebinarWordleThe NH Youth S•BI•RT Initiative held five open-sourced webinars, November 2015 – February 2016. Each webinar was designed to be informative and interactive, with topic-specific presentations followed by a facilitated discussion among participants. Both the presentation and open-discussion forum components sought to expand knowledge and capacity for sites interested in or actively implementing S•BI•RT, while also providing an opportunity for participants to share their learning experiences with one another and ask questions. Webinar topics ranged from the individual components of S•BI•RT to billing and coding considerations. All webinars were recorded and are available for streaming in the links below.  There are no upcoming webinars scheduled.  Please contact the NH Center for Excellence with any questions regarding these webinars.
