Dr. Maina and a team of three colleagues received funding from CRISM to engage in community stakeholder engagement and knowledge exchange event on substance use and addiction in Prince Albert. This event brought together diverse stakeholders in Prince Albert for a one-day event to talk about pressing and priority addiction issues facing the city of Prince Albert. This event culminated in the development of a Saskatchewan Health Research Foundation’s SPROUT grant application.
This project was recently presented at the CRISM Prairie Node 2nd Annual Gathering Nov 15-16, 2017 in Calgary, AB.
