HIV West Yellowhead is still offering our HIV and Addictions session in Jasper and Whitecourt throughout the next few months.

It is our hope that healthcare, social service workers and anyone who knows or works with people at risk or living with addiction will attend the session and be open to broadening their learning on the following subjects surrounding addictions:

  • Health culture
  • Reactions to conflict – Health care systems vs. street reactions
  • Understanding addictions
  • Pain control
  • Withdrawal
  • Bridging the gap between healthcare providers and people living with addictions
  • Common myths
  • and Effective strategies for service providers

Lunch will be provided and there is no cost to attendees. Donations are welcome and every contribution helps us provide services in your regions.

Looking forward to seeing you there!
