CRHESI Community Co-Director Steven Goodine spoke on a plenary panel at the Health Equity Action and Transformation conference in Toronto on June 13 and 14. The session was titled Opioids, Overdose and Harm Reduction. Video is available here.
From the Alliance for Healthier Communities (formerly the Association of Ontario Health Centres):
While policy makers have at times been slow to respond to Ontario’s opioid and overdose crisis, our members have demonstrated great leadership in working with communities to reduce harm to people who use drugs through de-prescribing, supervised consumption, overdose prevention and much more. In this plenary, we explored how to build local support and find the right strategy for your community. Speakers include: Rob Boyd of Sandy Hill CHC; Frank Crichlow from South Riverdale CHC; Jackie Harris from Central CHC in St. Thomas, and Steven Goodine, Board member of the London InterCommunity Health Centre.
