UBC Health and the BC Centre on Substance Use have launched the new Substance Use and Addiction Lunch & Learn Series to provide foundational knowledge about substance use and addiction. This free webinar series is geared towards health program instructors and preceptors from any discipline who supervise students. However, anyone can benefit from this learning, and all are welcome and encouraged to attend.
