New Directions for New York

The Drug Policy Alliance and the New York Academy of Medicine are co-hosting New Directions for New York, a conference on new options for drug policy in the state.

The description, as given on the event page, reads:

For too long, New York’s response to drug policy issues has relied heavily on a criminal justice approach. The Drug Policy Alliance and the New York Academy of Medicine have come together to convene a conference that will put forward New Directions for New York. This conference will bring together community advocates, researchers, service providers and legislators from all over the state in order to build a Public Health & Safety Approach to Drug Policy. For the first time, these various groups will participate in sessions and trainings that emphasize the need for better communication and a coordinated response to the drug policy issues facing New York. Using a public health framework, the conference will challenge participants to develop concrete proposals for improving the health of individuals, families, and communities in New York who are affected by substance use and misuse.

More information and registration can be found at the event page.
