National Press Foundation Offers Opioids Education
Reporting on opioids can take a toll on journalists, too. The National Press Foundation and the American Society of Addiction Medicine are offering an all-expenses-paid opportunity for journalists to pause and take a deep dive into the opioids crisis.
Over three days, NPF training will address: the science of addiction; the latest research on treatment; the role of marijuana and alcohol; trends in substance abuse; and more. With this grounding in hand, journalists will then cover the three-day American Society of Addiction Medicine Annual Conference, with full access to presenters and abstracts.
The NPF training is March 31-April 2. The ASAM Annual Conference runs from the evening of April 2-5. Both are in Denver.
The expenses-paid fellowship covers airfare, ground transportation, hotel costs, conference registration fees and most meals. It is open to all U.S.-based journalists. Applicants must commit to attend the NPF training and the ASAM conference. Apply here by Feb. 18.
