Combating Opioids in Rural Communities
Tackling the opioid crisis requires education and action across various community sectors and by individuals, professionals, and families. The North Central Regional Center for Rural Development and Purdue Extension host a quarterly webinar series, Combating Opioids, to share information, data, resources, and best practices or evidence-based interventions that can be implemented at the local level to make a difference in addressing opioid misuse and abuse, especially in rural communities. There have been over 575 participants from across the country on 5 webinars and over 1,000 views to archived presentations and materials housed on the project’s website. Photo by Falita Liles.
