Join the University of Michigan Injury Prevention Center for its second Safer Prescribing Series webinar where we discuss the intersection of health equity, stigma, and access to substance use disorder (SUD) treatment services in Michigan. Through a comprehensive lens, we will explore key themes shaping the state’s substance use landscape, focusing on data, resources, and practical strategies for fostering equitable care.

Educational Planner/Moderator: Eve Losman, MD, MHSA

Speakers: Kanzoni Asabigi, MD, PhD, MPH, MBA, Karla Mitchell, ND, MBA, Gabrielle Stroh-Steiner, MPH

Target Audience: Physicians and Medical Students, although the session is open to all

Expected Outcomes: After this activity, participants will be able to summarize health equity data and utilize the SUVI score, evaluate and predict the impact of stigma, false beliefs, and implicit bias on pain management and treatment services, summarize and utilize the concept of reciprocal relationships, illustrate disparities in overdose rates & access to SUD treatment (such as rural/urban, SE status, race/ethnicity), distinguish the types of language that can positively or negatively impact SUD treatment and care, and will be able to implement this knowledge into patient care.
