Submit events for International Overdose Awareness Day to WSHA for recognition

August 10, 2023

If your hospital is planning any activities for International Overdose Awareness Day (IOAD), we would like to be able to showcase your work in a future WSHA Weekly article. If you are interested in sharing your plans for IOAD, please contact Brittany Weiner, Assistant Director of Behavioral Health.

Aug. 31 is International Overdose Awareness Day a worldwide observance dedicated to remembering those who lost their lives due to overdose, promoting education to end overdose deaths, and honoring the grief of those who have lost a loved one. This year’s theme, “Recognizing those people who go unseen,” is intended to highlight those who have been impacted by overdose, including those in healthcare and first responders.
