Join JSI at the National Prevention Network Conference

August 24th, 2018 | News


For more than 25 years, JSI has worked with states, communities, and workplaces to address substance use disorders.

In the midst of the current opioid crisis, with its disproportionate effects on underserved communities, there is a greater need for evidence-based programs to decrease substance misuse and opioid-related morbidity and mortality.

JSI is proud to join their national and local partners and other experts at the National Prevention Network (NPN) Conference to discuss and share best practices in prevention medicine and research integration in Boston on August 28th–30th.

Planning to attend? Stop by booth #16 to learn about JSI’s comprehensive and integrated approach across the continuum of prevention, treatment and support to improve treatment and prevention policies based on the needs of their populations.
