Co-sponsored by the Institute on Urban Health Research and Practice (IUHRP)

The devastating toll of the opioid crisis creates an imperative for decisive, evidence-driven, and cost-effective solutions. Safe consumption facilities (SCF) reduce drug overdose, while connecting drug users to treatment and other services. Amidst mounting calls for the creation of SCFs in Massachusetts, this forum will provide stakeholders with an opportunity to review the available evidence and voice diverse perspectives on this timely and salient issue.

Coffee and light refreshments will be served. 

Free and open to the public!
