Many communities around the world are currently battling an opioid epidemic and knowing the science behind addictions is one way to help you and your community mitigate harm. This talk will introduce biological and pharmacological concepts that are relevant to understanding addiction behaviour. Heroin and fentanyl will be highlighted in order to increase public awareness about the biology and psychology behind overdoses and prolonged cycles of substance abuse.

Join us for this free talk provided by Dr. Deyar Asmaro in partnership with Capilano University. Dr. Asmaro (Honours B.A., M.A., Ph.D) is a psychology instructor at Capilano University, Langara College, Douglas College, and Kwantlen University. He completed his Ph.D at Simon Fraser University and studied the neuroscience of addiction behaviour while working in the Laboratory for Affective and Developmental Neuroscience. He was awarded a Vanier Canada Graduate Scholarship through the Canadian Institutes of Health Research in 2011 for his research on addictions and has published a number of scientific papers that pertain to the topic.
