Event description
Addressing how the current opioid crisis is increasingly impacting communities of color.

About this Event

This conference will bring together leading healthcare professionals, physicians, researchers, judges, social scientists, individuals with substance use disorder, criminal justice reform activists, policy experts, and diversity and inclusion advocates to discuss equity in the health sector and criminal justice system. This meeting will address how the current opioid crisis is increasingly impacting communities of color, who have been disproportionately stigmatized and incarcerated for substance use.

The goal of this meeting is to create meaningful conversations and collaborations to address the structural racism preventing communities of color from receiving treatment, recovery, and wrap around social services for opioid and other substance use disorders in Cleveland, in Ohio, and nationally. We will be showcasing evidence-based research and data from a range of urban and state contexts to provide ideas and strategies for broad-spectrum policy change across institutions. Attendees will learn about progressive solutions, share perspectives, and meet new colleagues.
