Plenary Panel

Disrupting Inequity: Unpacking Implicit Bias in Addiction and Recovery
8:30 am- 10:30 am; Sept 26-27

As Ohio continues to address the opiate/heroin crisis, it is critically important to confront biased perceptions about the impact of addiction across communities and cultures. While the collaborative and coordinated system response to this epidemic should be praised, failure to acknowledge pervasive bias further perpetuates trauma and threatens recovery for all. Panelists representing the legal profession, public policy, and lived experience will provide vital insight to ensure health equity.

Moderator: Craig Comedy- Executive Director, UMADAOP of Franklin County
Panelists: Dr. Anahi Ortiz- Franklin County Coroner, Lynette Cashaw-Davis- OhioMHAS, Andrea Boxill-Governor's Cabinet Opiate Action Team, Shavonda Johnson- Mansfield Correctional Institution
