The overdose crisis continues to devastate communities across Illinois. The COVID-19 pandemic adds an intensified strain to both substance use and medical care. To respond to this growing problem and its intersectional issues like increases in the spread of infectious illnesses, encounters between individuals living with mental health/substance use issues and law enforcement, lack of access to needed services, and homelessness, Heartland Alliance Health/Midwest Harm Reduction Institute (HAH MHRI) are bringing together healthcare providers and harm reduction groups to build/strengthen partnerships and ultimately, save lives.
Join us and our partners at the Illinois Society of Addiction Medicine for our final event, Helpers & Healers: Building Harm Reduction & Medical Provider Partnerships, an interactive, timely, and informative collaboration opportunity. This strategy session will engage attendees in a conversation about needs, opportunities, roadblocks, and tangible next steps for building partnerships between harm reduction and medical providers.
