Southern Nursing Research Society believes that engagement is essential to improving the health of the communities they serve. You are invited to participate in a Community Forum hosted by the Southern Nursing Research Society (SNRS) featuring community officials and local organizations invested in the health status of area residents. “Community Members and Researchers Addressing the Opioid Crisis” has two purposes: 1) to provide health promotion information related to the national opioid crisis and its effects on population health (more specifically in the Atlanta metro area); 2) provide an opportunity for stakeholders to network and discuss next action steps and strategies for involvement.
Invited are legislators, community stakeholders, faith-based leaders throughout Georgia. Confirmed speakers are Jim Lankford, Executive Director of GA Drug Prevention Project and Lt. Ricker, APD. Invited speakers include Mayor Lance Bottoms, Congressman John Lewis along with esteemed members of the CDC and Atlanta Police Department. Efforts to promote health and well-being in the local Atlanta community will be explored.
The SNRS Community Forum will end with a reception and light refreshments with an opportunity for networking and fellowship. Follow-up from the Forum will be provided to attendees and SNRS members.
The event is Wednesday, March 21, from 4 – 6 p.m. in Glenn Auditorium, Emory University Hospital Midtown, 550 Peachtree Street, Atlanta 30303. As space is limited, please confirm your attendance by responding here. Carpooling is encouraged as the cost for parking is $8.
