Event description

Description

This two-day Summit, February 5 & 6, will focus on the opioid crisis and related public health issues in rural northern California. Topics will include hepatitis C, HIV and STDs, and overdose, as well as other public health issues related to the opioid crisis. Participants will discuss existing resources and challenges to address these public health issues, models from the region that are working well to address these issues, and identify some realistic steps to overcome the challenges that exist. The draft agenda is available at http://bit.ly/2hpapo4.

Please note that day one will have an emphasis on hepatitis C, HIV, STDs, engagement of people who use opioids, and related issues, while the focus of day two will largely be on overdose education and naloxone distribution and increasing efforts to prevent non-fatal and fatal opioid overdose in the region.

The Summit objectives are:

  1. To encourage the sharing of best practices among providers in the region;
  2. To facilitate networking among providers working related to the opioid crisis in the region; and
  3. To summarize local provider recommendations for responding to the opioid crisis and related public health issues in the rural northern counties
