Publication Date: 9/21/2022

The Overdose Fatality Review (OFR) Mentor Program provides a unique opportunity to learn the application and practice of OFR from experienced peers. By building connections between OFR teams that have demonstrated success and those nascent teams, promising practices and national standards are elevated, communicated, and leveraged. This webinar will highlight the new OFR Mentor Program sites and include information on how to engage with the program, differences between the OFR Mentor and OFR Mentor Plus tracks, and getting the most out of the opportunity. In addition, the webinar will highlight a Lackawanna County, Pennsylvania, mentee experience.

During the webinar, the presenters will:
