People who use drugs are one of the most marginalized communities in America, and experience poor access to medical services and life-saving treatment. Join Linda Wang, MD, Medical Director of the Hepatitis C and Drug User Health Center of Excellence at Mount Sinai, as she interviews clinicians, patients, and advocates for harm reduction and social justice, about the current state of healthcare for people who use drugs and how clinicians and other members of the care team can improve that care. If you are someone who provides care for people who use drugs, this show will introduce you to the most recent New York State clinical guidelines for drug user health, innovative models of care, and the voices and stories of people who use drugs.
This show is part of the Clinical Education Initiative (CEI), funded by the New York State Department of Health AIDS Institute. For more information and to view CEI’s clinical programming, please go to ceitraining.org.
