Twitter is a real-time information network powered by people all around the world that lets you share and discover what’s happening now. Twitter asks “what’s happening” and makes the answer spread across the globe to millions, immediately.

ATOD has joined twitter to bring you updates about the alcohol, tobacco, and other drug world as quickly and efficiently as possible.  We also hope to increase communication between our members.  Please follow our twitter feed at @APHA_ATOD.



Slideshare.net is a social media site meant to share posters, presentations, documents and other content about a particular topic.  The ATOD section also has a slideshare account.  Thanks to many of our members, we have several documents posted there on topics ranging from tobacco cesastion to methamphetamine use.  You can access our slideshare account here.

We encourage you to share your ATOD-related posters and presentations with our members.  If you have content that you would like us to add please email us with attachments to aphaatod@gmail.com.
