Description

Join us on November 22, 2017 from 8:00am to 3:30pm for the fourth annual Community Connections for Addiction Awareness conference, hosted by CSART (the Community Substance Abuse Awareness Resource Team). The event is hosted in conjunction with National Addictions Awareness Week.

We are pleased to present Dr. Cheryl Currie as our keynote. Dr. Currie is an Associate Professor of Public Health in the Faculty of Health Sciences at the University of Lethbridge, and AIHS Translational Chair in Aboriginal Health & Wellbeing. A social epidemiologist by training, her research explores the upstream determinants of Aboriginal health, strength, and resilience in Canada. Dr. Currie works in partnership with urban and rural Aboriginal communities to examine how social experiences get under the skin to influence stress physiology, health, and wellbeing; and to develop interventions that promote wellness. At the 2017 Community Connections for Addiction Awarenss conference, she will be speaking on "The Relationship between Childhood Trauma and Addiction".

We are also pleased to offer several breakout sessions throughout the remainder of the day. See our Facebook page for more details.
