Being able to identify health inequities and communicate about them to key audiences is essential in addressing those inequities.

The March session of Hot Topics in Practice will introduce public health professionals to the Drug Addiction Treatment and Recovery Act, including why and how it is helping the health and well-being of Oregonians. Participants will hear from the Oregon Health Authority and a community-based organization working on the ground to support addiction treatment and recovery.
