Join the National Academy of Medicine, Dell Medical School at The University of Texas at Austin, and Shatterproof on June 10 am at 12 pm (ET) for the Stigma of Addiction Summit, a free, virtual, half-day symposium that will focus entirely on understanding, addressing and eliminating the harmful impacts of stigma on people who use drugs and experience addiction. 

The goal of the Summit is to elevate current efforts at reducing stigma, identify successes and gaps in the evidence base and prioritize and identify areas for future research and funding with an explicit focus on stigma, which is often touched upon only marginally in broader conversations about addiction.
