2019 Fall Symposia recordings now available

Thank you again for joining us on November 15th for our 2019 Fall Symposia. This year, we covered the topic, “Substance Use and the Workplace”. The symposium addressed current knowledge regarding substance use (cannabis, alcohol, opioids, and other substances) and its impact on workplace safety and employee health. Our line-up of speakers gave insightful talks addressing the nation’s opioid epidemic, cannabis in the workplace, drug use and drug use disorders in the workplace, as well as a look into community initiatives. Our expert panel proposed ideas and discussion around how employees and organizations can help prevent and mitigate negative outcomes taking us from awareness to action.

Our webinar recordings and presentation handouts are now available on our website. Please share with your workplace and someone that could benefit from these resources. They are available at no cost. We look forward to seeing you at our Spring Symposia. Details and official date coming soon on our Symposia page. We will see you in 2020 for our next event.
