NAM Action Collaborative to Host Webinar on Opioid Epidemic

The Action Collaborative on Countering the U.S. Opioid Epidemic will be hosting a webinar February 13, 2019, from 4:00 PM to 5:00 PM ET. The webinar will feature an overview of the Action Collaborative and the work it will undertake over the next two years to share knowledge, align initiatives, and advance multisector solutions to improve outcomes for those impacted by the opioid epidemic.

The Action Collaborative comprises four working groups that address key issues in formulating a comprehensive response to the opioid epidemic. Its public-private partnership consists of government entities, health systems, communities, provider groups, payers, industry organizations, academia, nonprofits, and others committed to sharing knowledge, aligning ongoing initiatives, and advancing collective, multi-faceted solutions.

Collaborative Co-Chairs Victor Dzau, MD, National Academy of Medicine, and ADM Brett Giroir, MD, US Department of Health and Human Services, will provide an overview of the Action Collaborative’s mission, followed by reports from the leaders of the four working groups. There will be approximately 20 minutes following the presentations for questions and answers and feedback with the public.
