Harm Reduction Access in Maine
Friday, Sept. 4 | 11:30 AM – 12:30 PM EST | Register

Following the Governor Mills’ 2nd Annual Opioid Response Summit, the Governor’s Office is excited to announce the beginning of a monthly virtual seminar series to improve public education and understanding around Substance/Opioid Use Disorder and highlight state and community responses to this deadly epidemic from across Maine. The first seminar will be held on Friday, September 4th from 11:30-12:30. We are thrilled to announce that our first guest will be Dr. Kinna Thakarar of Maine Health. Together, Dr. Thakarar and Maine’s Director of Opioid Response Gordon Smith will discuss harm reduction access in Maine, how covid-19 has affected that access, and why harm reduction is a critical healthcare service keeping Mainers alive.
