In many communities across the country, opioid overdose deaths have continued to rise and new research shows overdose mortality rates are rising dramatically faster among Blacks than whites in multiple states, and now exceed that of whites in Ohio. How can cities address systemic barriers to opioid treatment? Which barriers endure and for whom?
Join the BU Center for Innovation in Social Work & Health (CISWH) and the BU Initiative on Cities (IOC) for a discussion with key stakeholders. This webinar will include community leaders, policy advocates and research experts who will explore how to decentralize, destigmatize and improve equity in treatment delivery.
