Event description
As the current overdose crisis continues to ravage our communities it is critical that we unite our voices - those of us who are students, who are in public health or helping professions, or who are personally affected by the opioid epidemic. Together we can use our voices, skills, & education to influence policy and save lives!
This advocacy training will provide attendees with actionable steps to advocate for policy change and the skills to be part of helping to enact progressive change in the Keystone State.

Gain knowledge on the basics of harm reduction and what is meant by spectrum of recovery
Discover how a bill is made and what that means for policy advocacy
