Save the date for opioid crisis conference, July 25

5/7/2018

Registration is opening soon for The Opioid Crisis: How Educators Can Respond conference, scheduled for July 25 from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at The Ohio State University’s Ohio Union. The conference is designed to help educators better support children, families and communities caught up in the drug epidemic.
 
At the end of the conference, participants will recognize how the opioid crisis is affecting schools, understand the science of addiction, identify students or families suffering from addiction, connect affected families to appropriate social services, identify the strategies for effective prevention programs, and recognize and respond appropriately to an overdose.
 
Participation in the conference will allow educators, in consultation with their local districts, to apply for up to one professional development credit. Teachers, principals, superintendents, counselors, coaches and school social workers all will benefit from the conference programs.
