The words "evidence-based programming" are in the name of the company for a reason. We don't just say our products work. All of our products have published evidence of positive outcomes. Results of rigorous evaluations have been presented at national and international conferences and published in scholarly journals. Keep A Clear Mind is on the National Registry of Evidence-Based Programs & Practices, and several states and agencies have placed Keep A Clear Mind on their "approved" or "model" program list.

The Sex Can Wait/Living Smart curriculum series and the training program from which it originated has also won a number of national awards. Positive evaluations have been presented at national and international conferences and have been the topic of a number of journal articles.

Evaluations of Be A Winner have been presented at conferences and published in scholarly journals. In addition, the program received an outstanding community health promotion award from the Arkansas Department of Health.

The Center for Evidence-Based Programming is not a big company, but we are dynamic and committed to our cause. It's Carol and it's me (Michael) - and we aren't employees, it's our company. We cater mostly to public schools and community agencies that work with schools. We give great customer service and we do our best to build personal relationships with the people who express an interest in our products. We pack each order ourselves to make sure the customers get exactly what they want. When we do make a mistake (which is not often, but they do happen), we make it right, right away.

The Center for Evidence-Based Programming is located at:
143 Blue Heron Drive
