Special Interest Group B

Harm Reduction Techniques for Health Educators

My special interest topic is on the premier therapeutic treatment, harm reduction at Truman Health Services in Albuquerque, New Mexico. I would like to introduce health educators to how we practice our harm reduction techniques. Lianna Maldonado will discuss harm reduction practices with adolescents and their sexual health. I will talk about harm reduction practices and people with substance use disorders. We will both lead break-out sessions and guide our participants on how to incorporate the teach-back. It is my hope to increase awareness on how harm reduction can be used in the health education setting.
