HEAL Prevention Webinar Series


This webinar series will present current topics, research, and findings on the prevention of opioid misuse and use disorder. Attendees will hear updates from experts involved in the HEAL Prevention Initiative (HPI), a portfolio of research aiming to prevent opioid misuse and use disorder by advancing science in 4 strategic areas: 1) risk identification, 2) social determinants, health equity, and policy, 3) intervention development, and 4) dissemination, implementation, scale-up and sustainment of prevention services. Attendees will learn about progress made by the HEAL Prevention Cooperative, an HPI program that includes 10 research projects and a coordinating center working to develop preventative interventions in diverse settings (e.g., tribal communities, emergency department, school based health centers, child welfare system, juvenile justice system, behavioral health centers) among young people ages 15 to 30. Attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions and participate in the discussion during each live webinar.
