The More Than Health Care series focuses on the intersection of treating substance use, HIV, and hepatitis C, as well as utilizing proven clinical and social strategies to improve quality of life. Experts from across Massachusetts present on PrEP, treatment and support strategies in rural areas, harm reduction, mental health for both patients and caregivers, civil rights and legal protections, laws and regulations in MA, patient advocacy, care for incarcerated individuals and systems of care post-release, and the role of the community health worker.
The target audience for this series is providers, service providers, and community health workers who treat, counsel, or provide services to people who inject drugs and people with substance use disorder.
