Webinar: Correctional Facilities and MOUD During the COVID-19 Pandemic

March 31, 2020

Thank you to all those who have joined us in previous webinars in our ongoing series “FORE’s COVID-19 National Emergency Response: Maintaining Access to MOUD.”

Building off last week’s webinar, and in response to several questions we have received, we will focus this week’s webinar on the implications of COVID-19 emergency measures for those with opioid use disorder (OUD) in correctional facilities. Please join us as we welcome Nickolas Zaller, PhD, Professor at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences Fay W. Boozman College of Public Health, Nicolas Terry, Executive Director of the Hall Center for Law and Health at Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law, and Jodi Manz, MSW, Project Director for Chronic and Vulnerable Populations at the National Academy for State Health Policy (NASHP), on Thursday, April 2 at 3pm EST, to lead a discussion on the impact of the COVID-19 national emergency on the current treatment of OUD for those who are incarcerated and the importance of ensuring a safe release to optimize continuity of care. The panelists will review the latest federal and state policies related to this vulnerable population. An open Q&A session will follow the presentation.

We continue to invite you to look at our Resources page for the most up-to-date information, guidance, and recordings of previous webinars. As always, please reach out with questions and/or resources that you believe would benefits others.
