Central Region Provider Showcase & Reducing Isolation Conference
The Central Region Addiction Resource Center invites you to attend the Regional Prevention, Treatment, Recovery, & Support Provider Showcase & Reducing Isolation Conference. With so many agencies & programs changing, we want to offer an opportunity for providers to come & learn about all the services offered in the five-county region. It is important that we know what is available in order to connect people with Substance Use Disorders to the services best suited for them. As an agency, please think about sending at least one representative to share about your agency. We welcome up to three representatives from agencies & encourage any agency to think about sending at least one staff that works regularly with clients struggling with Substance Use Disorders. We also invite any community members to join us as we share about the wide range of services offered in Cayuga, Cortland, Madison, Onondaga, & Oswego counties.
Each provider in attendance will be given a short amount of time to tell everyone about the services they offer, who the agency serves, and how someone can get connected to those services. Following the brief, informational speech, each provider will take time to answer any questions. There will be a networking lunch after the showcase. We invite all participants of the Provdier Showcase to stay for lunch & connect with other providers. In addition to our morning showcase session, the CRARC will also be adding an afternoon session with Dr. Shannon Monnat, from Syracuse University. As a scholar of social inequality and social demography, Dr. Monnat’s research examines the correlates and consequences of social disadvantage, particularly at the intersections of place, public policy, and health. A common theme binding much of her work is a concern for rural people and places. Her current research focuses on spatial differences in opioid misuse and mortality and other diseases and deaths of despair. In another line of research, she examines associations between various social and public health policies and health behaviors and health care access. She has published in a wide range of journals, including Rural Sociology, Preventive Medicine, Demographic Research, Journal of Adolescent Health, and Health & Place and presented her research to key stakeholders, including the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, the U.S. Government Accountability Office, the National Academy of Sciences, and the USDA. Her research has been widely covered by the media, including CNN, New York Times, Washington Post, and NPR. OASAS credits for the afternoon session with Dr. Monnat are pending. You may register for just the morning Provider Showcase, just the afternoon session with Dr. Monnat, or both sessions. Lunch is not provided for those attending just the afternoon session with Dr. Monnat. Should you have any questions, please feel free to call (315)697-3947 or email firstname.lastname@example.org..
