“Covering Jails: Addiction Behind Bars”
Noon Pacific, Wednedsay, March 13
Presenter: Dr. Lipi Roy
People with addiction need treatment and care, not criminal punishment. This Poynter NewsU webinar will help reporters understand what the opioid epidemic looks like in local jails and how they can use storytelling to better shine a light on both problems and solutions.
Who should view? Journalists covering criminal justice, public health, mental health or government.
Dr. Lipi Roy is an internal medicine physician board certified in addiction medicine as well as clinical assistant professor at the NYU Department of Population Health.
This webinar is free thanks to the generous support of the MacArthur Foundation.
