Partnership Carson City
CARSON CITY — Executive Director of Partnership Carson City Hannah McDonald and Youth Program Coordinator and Training Specialist Samantha Szoyka will speak at the Public Health Cannabis and Vaping 3-Day Virtual Summit Jan. 12 to 14, 2021.
Partnership Carson City was founded to fight the spread of methamphetamine more than a decade ago. Since then, it has taken on the role of a coalition to support and organize all kinds of services throughout the capital city, including but not limited to cannabis and vaping prevention.
The Nevada Department of Health and Human Services and Division of Public and Behavioral Health in partnership with the Nevada Attorney General’s Office hosts the summit to identify Nevada’s priorities and strategies related to legal adult-use, public safety, regulation, prevention, treatment and oversight of cannabis and vaping products.
McDonald and Szoyka hope to provide a better understanding of national and Nevada trends and provide best practices for prevention and treatment use of cannabis and nicotine products.
“Cannabis and vaping, while recreational, have staggering impacts to individuals and their friends and family members,” said McDonald. “At Partnership Carson City we have seen what happens firsthand. During our presentations we will share data on trends as well as provide tips on prevention and treatment.”
The event will be held virtually. On the first two days, presentations and panels will focus on the current state of the research and the hosts and participants will explore emerging and established best practices. On the third day, attendees will be encouraged to participate in an action planning workshop.
