Join the next statewide Adolescent Behavioral Health Advocacy Coalition Call on June 28
Would you like to be a part of the Allegheny County Health Department's response to the opioid epidemic? ACHD are recruiting volunteers for a door-to-door community opioid awareness survey on Saturday, June 23, and Sunday, June 24. Volunteers will work in pairs to collect information about community opioid awareness, and will leave behind informational resources about prevention, overdose response, and treatment. All volunteers will receive training prior to and on their first morning of surveying. Each pair will need access to a personal vehicle, but those without a vehicle will be paired with others that have one. All volunteers will receive an official 2018 CASPER survey t-shirt. Breakfast and lunch will be provided. Sign up here.
