I am a Peer Engagement Specialist who creates linkages with the community based organizations and other stakeholders in East Harlem, NY, to combat substance use disorders, with a specific focus on opioids. I work with hospitals and direct street outreach to provide referrals for treatment and other necessities, to enhance the well-being of those in need. In addition to attending community meetings and other events, I provide training for opioid overdose prevention, including Naloxone kits. I have received additional training with LGBTQ, veteran, and domestic violence populations.
