Racial Equity and Substance Use Prevention in Minnesota
Tuesday, February 26, 2019
2 p.m. – 3 p.m. 

The overall drug overdose mortality rate in Minnesota is relatively low. However, this makes it easy to overlook a significant health disparity occurring within our state. African American and American Indian populations in Minnesota are dying from drug overdose deaths at disproportionate rates compared to whites. In fact, these disparities in drug overdose mortality rates are two of the greatest in the nation.

In order to ensure better health for all Minnesotans, program and policy decisions about preventing substance use, misuse, and overdose must apply a racial equity lens. Hear from staff at the Minnesota Department of Health to learn what is contributing to this disparity and how you can take action to help diminish it.
