This virtual conference is being held in recognition of National Recovery Month, and the goal is to share knowledge and insights to enhance prevention, treatment, and recovery practices of substance use disorders for Pacific Islanders and their communities across the Pacific. The two-day conference (September 20 – 21) will feature four keynote presentations and 24 workshop sessions focused on one of six tracks: Children and Family, Prevention, Mental Health, Clinical Interventions, Emerging Issues, and Populations with Specific Service Needs.
While largely congregated in the Western United States, approximately 1.5 Million Pacific Islanders live in the Mainland U.S. and Alaska, with communities distributed across the country. Many of these communities have limited access to healthcare and demonstrate significant impact of social determinants of health. This conference will bring critical information to often underserved and hidden populations across the U.S.
