Tami Micsky, a Slippery Rock University assistant professor of public health and social work, was the keynote speaker at the Positive Change Conference. The virtual conference was presented by Compass Mark, an addiction prevention organization; the Lancaster County Drug and Alcohol Commission; and Millersville University.

Micsky presented about loss and grief, including losses related to the COVID-19 pandemic, and offered reactions and practical interventions that lead to wellness and recovery. The PCC, which is attended by people working in helping professions where addiction is present, examined how attendees can “best deliver services that are informed and aligned with impacts driven by the pandemic at both the individual and community level.”
