September 28-29: HACHR Executive Director Brandie Wilson, attended the 2017 California Syringe Exchange Programs conference in Oakland, CA.
She brought back so many cutting edge ideas to Humboldt County, including innovative way to expand Hepatitis C testing and treatment. In addition, Brandie was asked to facilitate two conference sessions on best practices for Syringe Exchange Programs and Naloxone distribution in rural counties. She is helping the State of California better understand the unique barriers that come with rural drug use.
