Policies in Schools to Reduce Overdose and Other Drug-related Harm


July 1, 2024 | 12 – 1:00 p.m. CT

Attend this webinar, co-sponsored by the Network’s Harm Reduction Legal Project and ChangeLab Solutions, to learn about resources that policy decision makers can use to support their work to advance policies to reduce overdose and other drug-related harm. Attendees will hear from professionals working within the K-12 school system on efforts to implement harm reduction policies, including strategies and challenges, within schools.

This is the last in a series of four webinars funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to introduce two forthcoming resources, Preventing Overdose & Reducing Drug-Related Harm: A Policy Guide for State and Local Changeand Implementing State and Local Overdose Prevention Policies: A Resource for Navigating the Policy Process.

The webinars are intended for policy decision makers, public health practitioners, and community members to attend the one most closely related to their specific policy area of interest, but all will be beneficial to any individual wanting to make a positive change in the lives of people who use drugs and their communities. 

By attending this webinar, you will:

  • Learn how to use two new resources to support policy strategy
  • Delve deeper into the specifics of implementation best practices
  • Hear from a speaker with experience in implementing new harm reduction policies in the public school sector.
