Fulfilling NPA's Mission

WE EDUCATE. Using evidence-based research our presenters will help distinguish myth from fact, scientific information from media hype, and provide meaningful tools for improved care and treatment. 

WE ADVOCATE. In order to advance the health and well being of women and their families - and effectively address opioid use and and its consequences – we will promote best practices and effective polices so that we can reduce the negative effects of drug dependence and Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome.
