Community Engagement Institute Hosts KDHE Opioid Overdose Crisis Response Cooperative Agreement launch
On December 13th, 2018, representatives from fifteen Kansas local health departments gathered in Wichita for the KDHE Opioid Overdose Crisis Response Cooperative Agreement launch meeting. The community representatives reviewed opioid misuse statistics, evidence-based strategies to combat and prevent opioid misuse, and outlined strategies to implement these best-practices. The meeting, hosted by CPHI and KDHE, created a space in which communities could connect with one another get clarity on how to best move forward with this work.
The funded communities are: Barton, Crawford, Finney, Franklin, Geary, Harvey, Johnson, Labette, Mitchell, Neosho, Pottawatomie, Rawlins, Reno, Riley, Sedgwick and Stevens. CEI is partnering with KDHE to coordinate the delivery of technical assistance for funded communities.
