Nevada Activities

Nevada Tribal Methamphetamine Summit

The Nevada Tribal Methamphetamine Summit was held in Fallon, NV on April 22, 2009 to provide training and enhance collaborations between Tribal, Federal, State, County and Local agencies regarding the methamphetamine epidemic in Nevada. Attendees included 80 participants from Nevada tribal governments, inter-tribal agencies, law enforcement, drug prevention and counseling, environmental departments, and medical professionals. ATSDR/DRO Region 9 coordinated with the Indian Health Board of Nevada to develop the agenda.

In conjunction with the Summit, ATSDR/DRO Region 9 coordinated with the American College of Medical Toxicology (ACMT) to offer a course entitled, “Environmental and Health Consequences of Clandestine Methamphetamine Laboratories.” Continuing Medical Education (CME) credits were made available and all received Certificates of Attendance. This course offered a unique opportunity to learn about the clinical health effects of methamphetamine use and abuse, the hazards of synthesis, and responder concerns at clandestine laboratories.
