The BCCDC Foundation and the BC Centre for Disease Control and Science World are once more teaming up with Science World. This time, it’s for a free public event at Science World to increase awareness and understanding around BC’s overdose crisis, which will take place on Feb 28th, from 7-9pm.

Want to better understand drug addiction and the overdose crisis? join us for an important event where you will hear from experts and health care workers and discuss some of the myths around what drug addiction is and who it affects.

Confirmed panelists for the public education session will include BC Centre for Disease Control’s Executive Medical Director, Dr Mark Tyndall, Sarah Blythe of the Overdose Prevention Society and Sergeant Michael Wheeler of the Vancouver Police Department; stay tuned for others.
