Name of our group

PP Preventi Projecti Public Seen by 2

As Neil has mentioned, the Prevention Project is currently in transition for a likely merger with the Prevention Co-op, which will be housed at the Center of Excellence at the University of Maryland School of Medicine. As you might imagine, this raises the question of which name the group will take on with this new, combined identity. A few suggestions have begun and listed below. I would like to welcome input from all members to provide additional suggestions or voice your opinion about various suggestions below.

Suggestions for the full name of the group:

*Coalition for Science-Based Preventative Solutions to Promote Healthy Child and Adolescent Development
*...to Promote Child and Adolescent Wellbeing
*...to Promote Successful Outcomes for Children and Adolescents
*... to Prevent Child and Adolescent Disadvantage
*...to Prevent Poor Outcomes in Children and Adolescents

Possible Choice points of variations of these names include:
*Coalition, network, project, or consortium
*Adolecent/youth and children, development, or nothing (leaving it intentionally vague)
*promote healthy, successful, wellbeing; prevent poor outcomes, disadvantage
