Taking on the Opioid Crisis

The George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences (SMHS) is joining a national response to the opioid epidemic.

The National Academy of Medicine, in partnership with the Aspen Institute, has called on more than 35 organizations to form the National Academy of Medicine Action Collaborative on Countering the U.S. Opioid Crisis. The public-private partnership brings together entities from government, communities, health systems, provider groups, payers, industry, nonprofits, academia, and more.

All members of the collaborative are committed to sharing knowledge, aligning ongoing initiatives, and addressing the complex challenges faced by individuals, families, and communities affected by the opioid crisis.
