Bloomberg American Health Initiative: Addiction and Overdose

Event Information

Event description


Are you working to tackle addiction and overdose in your community?

The Bloomberg American Health Initiative, a project of the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, works to tackle some of the most pressing challenges to public health in the United States: Addiction and Overdose, Environmental Challenges, Obesity and the Food System, Risks to Adolescent Health and Violence.

A core component of the initiative is the Bloomberg Fellows Program. The Bloomberg Fellows Program offers a full scholarship and $10,000 stipend for the Master of Public Health (MPH) and Doctorate of Public Health (DrPH) programs at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health to individuals who are working on the front lines of change in their communities.

The Bloomberg Fellows Program is looking for inidividuals who are working to address addiction and overdose. We are seeking professionals working both within health and outside of health at different levels, including law enforcement, advocates, health professionals, government health agencies, policymakers, community based groups and organizers. There is special attention throughout the Initiative on advancing equity, using evidence, and changing policy. We seek to equip fellows with new knowledge, skills and tools to address addiction and overdose, including the opioid epidemic.

We invite you to join us on Wednesday, September 20th at 2:00pm EST, as we host an interactive webinar on Addiction and Overdose.
