Substance Use Disorders Institute (SUDI):
Help us be a part of the solution.
Our students and faculty are perfectly poised to help combat the opioid epidemic by providing education on appropriate opioid use, harm reduction strategies, and information about medical cannabis as an option.
Unfortunately, this epidemic continues to plague our society with more than 70,000 deaths from drug overdoses annually, making it a leading cause of injury-related death in the United States.
Fundraising Initiatives Below:
Medical Cannabis Education - Goal $3,000
Each year SUDI provides a 4-hour PA Department of Health (DOH) approved course on Medical Cannabis to all graduating pharmacy students. Successful completion of this course allows students to work in the medical cannabis industry or be knowledgeable about medical cannabis for the patients they will be serving in their community. Your gift will help underwrite the cost of this effort.
Student Research - Goal $3,000
Many students conduct research on Substance Use Disorders and present their results at national meetings. Some require funding to conduct surveys, purchase software and data, or just print materials for research participants.
General Fund - Goal $1,000
This would allow SUDI to have the flexibility to pay for unexpected expenses or opportunities as they arise.
