About the event
Welcome to the UROHC Overdose Public Safety/Public Health Summit PageOn behalf of the Utah Rural Opioid Healthcare Consortium (UROHC) and Southern Utah University, I would like to welcome you to the UROHC Overdose Public Safety/Public Health Summit page. We are thrilled to have been able to bring together members of the law enforcement and first responders communities along with public and clinical health professionals to discuss our roles in combating Opioid Use Disorder (OUD) in rural Utah.
As a consortium, we have been at work in a number of rural communities since 2018, and we are excited to share our efforts with everyone in attendance in an effort to help our consortium understand what we can do to better support you as you too work to combat OUD through your role in your community.
Our goal for the event and this webpage are two fold. We hope that you are better able to understand what others in our communities are encountering as they work within their roles to assist the community in this terrible epidemic. We also hope that we can build partnerships and contacts throughout this event page that we can take back to our communities. Each of us have a unique set of skills and resources to bring to the fight against OUD and other forms of Substance Use Disorder (SUD). It will take all of us working together as a team to help our communities overcome these dreadful challenges that threaten the health and wellbeing of our communities.We hope that you enjoy the excellent content from this event that we have put together for you, thank you for your time, support, and efforts to serve your community.
