Register for this webinar

In our December Community Conversation, we will dive into the topics of syringe services and safer consumption. Syringe access is an important harm reduction strategy that can reduce the transmission of infectious diseases and increase linkages to substance use treatment and other health care services.

We will start with an overview of the state of Syringe Service Programs (SSPs) across the country and then hear from providers about the ways they bring services into their communities to support safer consumption. Join us and share your successes and challenges in this essential work.
