Webinar Series: Introduction to the Opioid Epidemic (Three-part Series)
Thursday, January 25, 2018
2:00 PM - 3:00 PM CST


Hosted by APA’s Planning and Community Health Center and Healthy Communities Collaborative




In 2018, APA’s Planning and Community Health Center and Healthy Communities Collaborative will host a series of webinars to explore the intersection of planning and the opioid epidemic. Designed to share local experiences and national resources, the series is also meant to launch a network of members and peer professionals working to understand the crisis and our roles in it.

The first session, Introduction to the Opioid Epidemic, will ground the series in a public health framework, featuring substance use disorder and chronic disease prevention expert Liz Blackwell-Moore: How do we understand addiction? How are public health professionals engaging other sectors to address this crisis?

The session will also share the work of the National Association of Counties, highlighting the recently released report on the epidemic as well as the collaboration between the National League of Cities and their efforts to use GIS to understand the crisis in specific communities.
