Event description

Description

Symposium on Data, Modeling, and Policy Making to Address the Opioid Epidemic

Opioid use disorder is one of the biggest public health challenges facing the United States, and local and national policy makers are striving to develop interventions to mitigate its impact. Robust data and analyses are fundamental to understanding the extent of the epidemic and to developing, evaluating, and improving policy responses. However, there are many challenges related to data collection (e.g., completeness, timeliness) and modeling for local and national policy interventions. Join the Committee on Applied and Theoretical Statistics on June 10, 2019 from 1-5pm ET for a half-day discussion exploring current practices, challenges, and opportunities for using data, modeling, and policy making to address the opioid epidemic.
