On Tuesday, September 19 from 2:00 – 3:00 PM EST, UCHAPS will host a webinar: Hidden Crisis, Meth and Opiod use among Black Gay Men. This webinar aims to create the dialogue on the impact of Crystal Meth and Opioid use with Black Gay men. Already bearing the burden of HIV, Meth and Opioid use can be devastating to a community already struggling to find resources. By bringing awareness to this public health crisis and having a dialogue, we can address health disparities in an overlooked community.
Following this webinar, participants will be able to:
Understand fundamental unique circumstances of Black Gay Men using Crystal Men and Opioids
Operationalize best practices among health department and Community Based Organization staff to more accurately meet the needs of target populations within a specific jurisdiction
Disseminate lessons learned with interested parties and continue identifying gaps that may arise.
