New research and polling data are shining light on how we talk about opioid safety in ways that help us surmount apathy and strengthen support for our strategies. Join the California Opioid Safety Network (COSN) for the third web forum in our series, “No Wrong Door for Opioid Safety: How to Communicate for Impact” and hear experts from across the country share tactics for launching public communications campaigns, deliver effective messaging around stigma and harm reduction, and capture media attention for your work.  

Registration for this event is free and open to the public. Closed captioning is available to all attendees.
