System-level Approaches to the Opioid Use Disorder Epidemic
Dr. Robert Pack, associate dean for Academic Affairs in ETSU’s College of Public Health, joined leaders from public health schools in four other states in the Appalachian region to discuss with members of the U.S. Congress the complex and dynamic processes at work in the opioid crisis. Pack joined his colleagues in sharing findings on unique approaches to address the course of the epidemic as well as discuss how university-based public health experts are assisting affected communities by bringing traditional and novel epidemic control strategies to bear on the disease.
