Last month we witnessed stigmatizing, racist news coverage and public discourse surface around the Department of Health and Human Services' Harm Reduction Grant Program. To combat the misinformation being circulated, this episode is the first conversation in a 3-part series about Harm Reduction.
In Part 1, Phil has a powerful conversation with Brittany Salerno, a founding member of the Philadelphia Overdose Prevention Network and an emergency buprenorphine coordinator at the Center for Addiction Medicine and Policy. Hear Brittany discuss the meaning of Harm Reduction, how it is socially stigmatized, her experiences in clinical and advocacy settings, and how she became involved in this life-saving work.
