Call for Posters
The NC Opioid Misuse and Overdose Prevention Summit seeks to highlight the work of undergraduate and graduate students through poster presentations at this year’s summit. Focused around the theme, Engage, Educate, Energize, the summit will feature a wide range of exciting discussions and networking opportunities with experts, researchers, and up-and-coming leaders working to address opioid misuse, addiction, and overdose. This is an opportunity for students to share their work with others who are promoting innovative policies, strategies and prevention practices in North Carolina.
