Webinar: Reducing polysubstance use in pregnancy

The use of multiple substances, including tobacco, alcohol, and opioids, during pregnancy can have negative effects on a pregnant person and the developing baby.

This session of Public Health Grand Rounds will discuss adverse maternal and child health outcomes caused by polysubstance use, how data can improve our understanding of polysubstance use, and how screening and brief interventions may reduce prenatal substance exposure and improve the health of women and infants.

There will be a live question and answer segment at the end of the session. Please submit questions for this topic to
