This webinar will kick off a training academy focused on building skills for policy work around overdose prevention. This webinar will offer the “101” about the overdose issue, giving a data overview, context, and the partnerships and funded projects that are working to address the problem.
Register TODAY for the webinar—and share it widely with your networks. This is a great presentation for community partners and leaders who need to know about this important issue, but who may not work on it directly.
This is just one part of a very exciting opportunity to deepen your abilities to effectively address the overdose epidemic through policy. The full training includes a second webinar, and then two workshops that are open only to those who register to participate. The first is a preparatory virtual meeting to get ready for an in-person training in Chapel Hill, NC April 11-13, 2017. This is a project offered nationwide by the UNC Injury Prevention Research Center, and the Southeastern and Southwestern Injury Prevention Network.
