Webinars Spotlight Local, State, & National Partners’ Responses to Infectious Disease Consequences of Opioid Epidemic

Join the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services for 2 webinars discussing the impact of the opioid epidemic on infectious diseases, and local, state, and national actions to address both.

Panelists will describe the use of existing federal guidance, policies, and resources that support their efforts–at the local, state, and national levels–to respond to the opioid epidemic and its infectious disease consequences. Each session will include discussion of the impact of the opioid epidemic on infectious diseases, burdens and challenges, innovative steps being taken to address the intertwined problems, and opportunities to further strengthen these efforts by both nonfederal as well as federal partners.
