In recognition of the opioid epidemic impacting communities across Indian Country, Kauffman & Associates, Inc. (KAI) and The Pew Charitable Trusts are collaborating to convene this virtual event series to discuss the needs of American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN) people and the various ways that opioid treatment is delivered and viewed in Native communities. Through the information exchanged in these virtual events, we seek to help improve access to quality, culturally meaningful treatment for opioid use disorder in AI/AN communities across the United States. We look forward to convening this virtual circle, and we hope you will join us.
