In partnership with Metro Cinema and Lost Time media, I'm excited to announce our follow-up screening and public education event, "Love in the Time of Fentanyl" (Thursday, February 16th).

This event will include an naloxone training, harm-reduction reception, film screening, and presentations from medical and public health experts.

This is a timely public education opportunity on the importance of public health and evidence-based public policy. Respondents will be sharing insights, trends, and a public policy analysis to connect the themes of the film to Edmonton. You are encouraged to submit questions in advance following your RSVP.
