Opioids & Addiction: A Public-Health Approach to Change

H. Mebane Turner Learning Commons
Town Hall

Trend data on overdose deaths and judicial proceedings show the tragedy of the opioid crisis, its blight on rural and urban America and the failure to resolve it. Where initiatives have made a positive difference, they include a bundle of evidence-based public health, criminal justice and policy actions.  

Our panelists will address the core of a public-health approach to changing the trends in addiction, incarceration and death from opioids. Each panelist will speak for approximately 20 minutes, and identify the main lessons learned from their perspective. A question-and-answer session with the audience will follow. 

Tom Carr, executive director, Center for Drug Policy and Enforcement, University of Baltimore
Jennifer Martin, deputy commissioner, Population Health and Disease Prevention, Baltimore City Health Department

Alan Lyles, Henry A. Rosenberg Professor of Government, Business and Nonprofit Partnerships, University of Baltimore
