INTERSECTIONALITY: ADDICTION, RECOVERY, INCARCERATION AND RACE
Date: May 24, 2018
10:00 AM (EDT) May 24, 2018 Webinar:
Description: The content of this webinar will be a personal narrative of the lived experiences of an individual who began life in poverty, misused drugs, was incarcerated, and encountered the oppression that most Black males experience. While we all tend to form initial impressions based on visible features, it is often the invisible and intersecting characteristics that are important for delivering effective, culturally responsive communication and care. While this webinar concerns one person’s life, that life may be reflective of the lives of some of the diverse clients seeking to access healthcare services.
One CEU will be awarded for participation in the full hour-long webinar.
