DC Wards 5 & 6 Prevention Center and Catholic University’s Community Opioid Awareness Health Fair

Butler & Davis Consulting LLC. was pleased to support the DC Wards 5 & 6 Prevention Center and Catholic University’s  Community Opioid Awareness Health Fair on September 14, 2022. 

 

 

It was a full-day event with speakers discussing issues such as the importance of prevention in the continuum of care, how to build school-based partnerships and the truths and myths of medication-assisted treatment. University students from around the District spoke about their experience learning about the prevention of opioids and graduates from an intensive learning community showcased their skills and shared best practices in conducting street outreach. Overall it was a full day dedicated to combating the opioid epidemic in the District of Columbia which ranks amongst the top states for opioid overdoses and related deaths. 

 

We also assisted the prevention center in developing a social media toolkit that can be used to prevent and aid in the recovery from opioids. To learn more about the health fair visit here and to download the social media toolkit click here.
