Description

Program information:

The Opioid crisis continues to claim the lives of Canadians including those living in New Brunswick. Approximately 7000 lives have been lost in 2016 & 2017 due to apparent opioid related overdose across the country. Opioid related deaths are now the leading cause of mortality among Canadians between the ages of 30 and 39. These individuals are our sons, daughters, fathers, mothers and friends.

We are tasked as a community to do more to decrease stigma, improve access to care, provide support and explore innovative approaches to address this complex issue.

The second annual Harm Reduction Symposium will bring together many stakeholders to raise awareness, educate and enhance harm reduction collaboration.

Hot and cold hor d'oeurves to be served.
