Syringe Access Programs: Get the Point?
With Shannon Robinson, Program Director, Western Colorado AIDS Project
LIVE, ONLINE VIA VIDEO CONFERENCE !
Wednesday, August 2, 2017, from 7:30-9:00 p.m.
The prescription opioid epidemic has led to a significant increase in injection drug use across the United States. Often hounded by misconceptions, syringe access programs (SAPs) have been proven effective at reducing Hepatitis C and HIV transmission and infection rates related to this public health crisis.
Get the point! Colorado has multiple syringe access programs (SAP) in operation along the Front Range and on the Western Slope. Shannon Robinson, Director of Western Colorado AIDS Project’s Mesa County SAP, will help us understand the science, operations, and benefits of these controversial programs.
Join us for this frank, informative, and lively discussion! You can attend a Men’s Forum from a PC, Mac, or Linux computer, an iOS/iPhone, or Android phone. You also can join audio only from a regular phone.
