Mid-America ATTC hosts virtual learning collaboratives to help professionals throughout our region implement various evidence-based practices related to substance use disorder treatment and recovery. Using Zoom videoconferencing technology, participants are able to connect with subject matter experts and other professionals to learn from each other as a community.

Region 7 Recovery Stakeholders Learning Community

Missouri Recovery Network (MRN) and Mid-America ATTC are collaborating to establish a Region 7 Recovery Stakeholders Learning Community. This Learning Community will provide a networking bridge among recovery stakeholders in the four states in Region 7 – Missouri, Kansas, Iowa, and Nebraska. These monthly meetings will be conducted using Zoom, a free videoconferencing technology that allows participants to join the meeting via computer or mobile device. 

During each one-hour monthly session, there will be a presentation by a guest speaker on a topic relevant to the participants, followed by questions and answers and discussion for the remainder of the time. The sessions take place on the last Thursday of each month from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m.

Participants will assist in determining topics for future sessions. If you have questions or want to join, contact Bree Sherry at sherryb@umkc.edu or 816-235-5057. Join in the conversation and pass this invitation on to others who may be interested!
