Seminar Talk by Dr. Rachel Winograd
Making an Impact on Our Overdose Crisis: A Complex but Not Impossible Task
The Cofrin Logan Center Spring 2022 Seminar Series
April 22, 10:30 AM CT (Virtual)
Dr. Rachel Winograd
Associate Professor
Missouri Institute of Mental Health
University of Missouri—St Louis

Talk Description: In this talk, Dr. Winograd will provide background on the current state of the overdose crisis, then zoom in on three Missouri-based projects aimed to address it. These efforts center around: improving naloxone distribution and harm reduction training to prevent fatal overdose; increasing access to medical treatment for opioid use disorder in publicly-funded treatment programs; and investing in the health and well-being of Black people who use drugs in St. Louis. She will highlight the promise of these efforts but also why they are not nearly enough to stem the rising death toll. Dr. Winograd will end by talking about what else must be done to save and improve lives impacted by addiction…and how we can do it.
