In June 2021, ADAI’s Center for Community-Engaged Drug Education, Epidemiology, and Research (CEDEER) held its second annual Transforming Our Communities: Supporting People Who Use Drugs summit.

This 2-day event aimed to bring diverse participants together to:

  • Understand the perspectives of people who use drugs
  • Understand the importance of equitable access to care and services
  • Build partnerships and connect people within their communities
  • Walk away with fresh ideas

Day 1 featured participants from around the state gathering to hear from people with lived experience. Day 2 began with topic-specific breakout sessions, followed by a full group meeting with a call to action, wrap-up, and next steps.

Recordings and slides from this event are now available!
