Opioid Prevention Education Project

Northern Area Health Education Center received a grant through the United States Department of Health and Human Services for the period September 1, 2021 through August 31, 2022 to provide opioid prevention education in our service area. NAHEC utilized these funds to coordinate and collaborate with local community-based partners to host six community engagement events and fifteen tabling sessions to increase local knowledge and awareness of opioid abuse, prevention and treatments.

Important partners include St. Lawrence County Public Health, St. Lawrence County Community Services, Seaway Valley Prevention Council, New York State Clinical Education Initiative (CEI), Binghamton University School of Pharmaceutical Science and Rural and Underserved Service Track (TRUST), and New York State Office of Addiction Services and Supports (OASES).
