Harm Reduction Coalition of York Region

November 29th, 2011

One of my community roles is Chairing the Harm Reduction Coalition of York Region. We are group of York Region non profit organizations strongly committed to the harm reduction philosophy and policy practice. We were asked to present in a local conference and jumped at the opportunity to raise awareness about harm reduction to attending practitioners.

Patti Bell from Blue Door Shelters and Lori Kerr from LOFT Crosslinks Street Outreach Services Network presented at the conference hosted by York Support Services Network.

Their presentation was filled with very useful information about harm reduction. Patti and Lori talked about the current state of harm reduction in York Region and the challenges of implementing a structured harm reduction practice in organizations. Patti and Lori talk over the presentation with Radha Bhardwaj (center), Executive Director of the AIDS Committee of York Region.
