While the pandemic has negatively affected all of us, for those in need of critical care who have been unable to access such care, the pandemic has proven particularly damaging. Attend this webinar to learn the unique impacts the pandemic has had on some of our most vulnerable populations and what law and policy changes can be made to improve access to needed care and to better protect these populations during future public health crises.

By attending this webinar you will:

  • Hear about recent changes to increase access to opioid use disorder (OUD) treatment in response to the pandemic, and recommendations for permanently reducing legislative and regulatory barriers to effective, evidence-based interventions for OUD.
  • Obtain insight into how law and policy can support access to mental health care and promote well-being during and after the pandemic
  • Learn about the barriers that prevent effective use of telehealth to improve health care access, particularly for those populations that already face disparities in COVID-19 burden and risk.
