Emily Pasman is a Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Michigan Center for the Study of Drugs, Alcohol, Smoking and Health. Her social work practice has centered around the development, implementation, and evaluation of peer-delivered services for people in, or seeking, recovery from addiction. Her current program of research aims to expand harm reduction interventions, improve peer-delivered services, and promote effective youth prevention and recovery support. In each area, she examines stigma as a primary barrier to effective service provision. The overall goal of her work is to reduce overdose fatalities and other substance use-related harms by increasing access to evidence-based health services.
