OD PREP Episode 7: A Conversation with Laura Shaver and Reija Jean from BCAPOM

November 30, 2021 @ 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm

The OD PREP series is coming to a close with our seventh and final installment: A Conversation with Laura Shaver and Reija Jean from the BC Association of People on Opiate Maintenance (BCAPOM) We are ending on a hopeful note. Laura and Reija are incredible peer activists who have worked tirelessly to expand access to opioid agonist therapy (OAT) across the province.


Safer supply is a critical issue. The Province has rolled out numerous iterations of prescription programs for people to supplement or replace their use of street drugs and reduce their risk of poisoning and overdose. Such a policy intervention is unprecedented and largely due to the lobbying efforts of grassroots organizations such as BCAPOM and VANDU.


Join us next Tuesday, November 30th at 2:30pm to hear from Reija and Laura about their organization, partnerships and advocacy for an expanded peer network and access to OAT. The format is casual. They plan to chat with one another and with you to share their knowledge and answer your questions. As always, the webinar is free to join! 


Click here to register. We hope to see you there!
