This lecture has concluded.
The 2018-19 Dean’s Lecture Series focuses on Opioid and Substance Use Disorders: Destigmatizing the Issue and Responding to the Challenge. The Virginia Lee Franklin Lecture, the first in a series of four, introduces a panel of experts from research, nursing, and social work. Their presentation will be followed by an "open mic" session for all to participate. We look forward to you joining us!
Between January and June of this year, Maryland reported 1,185 opioid-related deaths, and Baltimore city represents one of the hardest-hit communities in the state. Individuals with substance use disorders face challenges from multiple sources, including stigma that they lack the will to overcome their addiction. Professionals providing care in all settings also face challenges in understanding the complexity of the issue and in establishing the collaborative network needed to provide effective care. There are promising developments in research and practice for improving outcomes. This lecture series considers these developments and invites you to participate in the dialogue.
