Overview

The Lake Cumberland District Health Department (LCDHD) is collaborating with several agencies/organizations to host the 2020 Kentucky Harm Reduction Summit. The Summit will focus on Harm Reduction from a number of perspectives including prevention, infectious diseases, funding, programs, leadership, families and recovery. The Summit will incorporate the six principles of Harm Reduction including: 1) Health and Dignity 2) Participant-Centered Services 3) Participant Involvement 4) Participant Autonomy 5) Sociocultural Factors and 6) Pragmatism/Realism.

LCDHD is collaborating with the Kentucky Department for Public Health (KDPH), Kentucky Injury Prevention and Research Center (KIPRC), Kentucky Income Reinvestment Program (KIRP), Kentucky AIDS Education Training Center (KYAETC), and the Department for Behavioral Health, Developmental and Intellectual Disabilities (DBHDID) to conduct the Summit. These agencies/organizations have a role in implementing Kentucky’s Harm Reduction Program and Harm Reduction Summit.

Due to the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, the Summit will be held virtually utilizing a Zoom Meeting platform in place of conducting a face-to-face conference. A virtual summit is required due to the ongoing public health response to COVID-19 and the Governor’s Executive Order regarding social distancing, mass gatherings, and travel restrictions. A virtual meeting will provide the opportunity for persons across Kentucky, as well as persons from outside the state, to attend multiple breakout sessions, panel and group discussions, and virtual networking rooms for attendees.
