Green Dot five year research study published in the Journal of Preventive Medicine

The five-year research study on Green Dot in Kentucky schools was published in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine today! This study is the largest and longest randomized controlled trial of bystander intervention programs focusing on sexual violence prevention in high schools. It also showed that the implementation of Green Dot in Kentucky high schools resulted in a decrease in perpetration of sexual violence, sexual harassment, stalking, and dating violence.

Thank you to the UK research team, led by Dr. Ann Coker and Dr. Heather Bush, Dr. Patty Cook-Craig, all of the schools that participated in the study, and our wonderful Prevention Educators around the state!.
