ON MONDAY JULY 6, 2020, 5:30-6:30 YOU ARE INVITED to the virtual premiere and panel discussion of Health & Home, a new documentary on housing during the opioid crisis. This documentary was directed by James Wong, a graduate student in the Addictions and Concurrent Disorders (ACD) Research Group led by Dr. Michael Krausz.
In Greater Vancouver, nearly half of fatal overdoses occur in social and supportive housing, single-room occupancy hotels (SROs), hotels, and shelters.
We interviewed people with lived experience, frontline workers, and researchers to discuss the major risk factors and management strategies to prevent opioid overdose in housing facilities.
The documentary will be premiered on Youtube, followed by a panel discussion with Dr. Michael Krausz and the filmmakers.
