One way to increase general awareness within a community is to attend a seminar on the topic. It can be as detailed as a workshop teaching Drug Endangered Children (DEC) awareness or as relaxed as a PowerPoint presentation viewed at a town hall meeting.
Here are some common opioid-related events:
- Educational Film Screening
- Addiction Seminar
- Naloxone Training
- DEC Awareness Training
- Opioid Summit Town Hall Meetings
- Monthly Prevention Coalition Meetings
- Health Fair
