Evidence-Based Strategies for Preventing Opioid Overdose: A Conversation with CDC Experts

 

Join us on March 7th from 1-2:30 p.m. (ET) for a webinar and Q&A to discuss key strategies to preventing opioid overdose with experts from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Provisional data from the CDC’s National Center for Health Statistics shows that there were over 100,300 drug overdose deaths in the United States from April 2020 – April 2021, a nearly 30% increase from the year prior. Given this increase in overdose deaths across the U.S., it is more important than ever to understand the evidence-based strategies that are available to address opioid use disorder in our communities.

Dr. Jennifer J. Carroll, a dual trained medical anthropologist and public health researcher, and Michelle Putnam from the CDC’s Division of Overdose Prevention will discuss designing and implementing effective opioid overdose prevention strategies, including targeted naloxone distribution, the importance of medication for addiction treatment (MAT), syringe service programs, and more.
