Postponed: Interdisciplinary Dialogue: Opioids & navigating community crisis

Based on UMD's guidance to avoid hosting large gatherings for the next 60 days, we have decided to postpone the Interdisciplinary Dialogue on the Opioid Crisis scheduled for March 26 to Fall 2020. Please stay tuned for the new date.

In Maryland and across the United States, opioid dependence and addiction continues to be a serious public health challenge and has garnered national attention. How did we get here? What does the future look like? Join the University Libraries for an Interdisciplinary Dialogue on addressing barriers, assessing interventions, and supporting those struggling with addiction.

Powered by the University Libaries. Featuring:

11:00 - 12:00 PM: Student group tabling
12:00 - 1:30 PM: Panelist presentation and audience Q&A
1:30 - 2:30 PM: Optional Naloxone training from the University Health Center

The Interdisciplinary Dialogue Series features panel discussions on important topics by scholars from various disciplines at the University of Maryland. The forums are free and are open to all members of the campus community, as well as to members of the general public. We are happy to welcome our panelists:
