Webinar: National Academy of Medicine's Action Collaborative on Countering the U.S. Opioid Epidemic virtual symposium

Speakers will address the highest-priority elements of the nation’s response to the opioid epidemic particularly in the context of COVID-19.

The National Academy of Medicine (NAM), established the Action Collaborative on Countering the U.S. Opioid Epidemic in 2018 as a two-year, public-private partnership to foster greater coordination and collective action across the health system and beyond in addressing the opioid addiction crisis. The Action Collaborative uses a systems approach to convene and catalyze public, private, and non-profit stakeholders to develop, curate, and disseminate multi-sector solutions designed to reduce opioid misuse, and improve outcomes for individuals, families, and communities affected by the opioid crisis.

During this virtual symposium, Action Collaborative members and invited expert speakers will address among the highest-priority elements of the nation’s response to the opioid epidemic, particularly in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic. Over the course of the day, participants will learn about the most promising opportunities to achieve a health system that is better prepared to prevent, treat, and manage substance use disorders.
