This free series is geared towards the needs and interests of individuals operating in a healthcare or research setting, however, the public and other interested stakeholders are welcome and encouraged to attend.

Learning Objectives:
1) Explore why rates of substance use and depression are higher in some health professionals.
Consider why it is important to talk about substance use and depression particularly in health professionals.

2) Identify information-sharing policies and best practices implemented by individual festivals and international communities for which universal adoption might further improve harm reduction efficacy

A light lunch will be provided. We strongly encourage guests to RSVP as soon as possible to ensure sufficient food and space. (Please note that you will not need to bring your registration ticket(s) to the event.)
