WHL Awarded Minority Health Grant to Expand Opioid Program
For the past year, WHL has been working with diverse populations throughout the state to educate on safe and effective opioid use. WHL is looking forward to this next year for the opportunity to reach a new population, working with justice-involved individuals.
Thanks to the support of the Wisconsin Department of Health Services Minority Health Program, WHL was awarded $25,000 to expand from the existing
Let's Talk About Pain Medicines
program and develop curriculum for a new program called
Let's Talk about Opioids
Learning that the leading cause of death after being released from prison is drug overdose, WHL has partnered with five correctional and transitional facilities in Wisconsin to host a series of workshops that provides education for people in prison or jail about opioids and the risks associated after being released from prison or jail.
