REACH programming will continue to be remote for 2022-2023! We have created an entirely virtual curriculum to keep our scholars engaged and learning about how to best care for minoritized patients with SUD. Scholar’s feedback is favorable to regular virtual check-ins with our scholars and a Self-Preservation & Healing Module to help scholars care for themselves while they are living and working through this exceptionally challenging time. The tables below display the content of the virtual REACH curriculum, including monthly Webinars and Core Curriculum topics (formerly part of the 1-Week Intensive).
