Upcoming Webinar on Harm Reduction: A Substance Use Disorder Overview

Posted by on November 3rd, 2022 Posted in: Blog, Education and Outreach, NLM, NNLM, Public Health


Harm reduction is a series of strategies that emphasizes engaging directly with people who use drugs to prevent overdose and infectious disease transmission, improve the physical, mental, and social wellbeing of those served, and offer low-threshold options for accessing substance use disorder treatment and other health care services.

Join us on November 15th for a Harm Reduction: A Substance Use Disorder Overview webinar.  The webinar will give an overview of the potential harms associated with drug use; underlying philosophies and principles central to a harm reduction approach to working with people who use drugs; and definitions and examples of harm reduction in direct service and policy contexts.

  • Date(s): November 15, 2022
  • Time: 1:00 PM – 2:00 PM EST
  • Platform: Webex
  • Qualifies for CPH and CHES credit

The webinar will be presented by Miera Corey, a Maryland Harm Reduction Training Institute (MaHRTI) Coordinator. This training is for those interested in learning more about harm reduction, as well as practitioners, organizations, and outreach workers providing services to people who use drugs.
