Olympic Community of Health presents the Coffee Break Video Series, addressing local health issues through community conversations and shared cups of coffee.
This video series brings bite sized conversations (in 15 minutes or less) discussing health challenges directly to your screen. We invite you to grab a cup of coffee or tea and join us as we dive into the third topic: taking action to address of substance use disorder stigma. This video features the perspective and experience of Molly Martin (Executive Director, Jamestown Healing Clinic) and Kaela Moontree (Healthy Communities Specialist,
Kitsap Public Health District).
