The University of Buffalo (UB) is joining forces with the National Academy of Medicine (NAM) in the Action Collaborative on Countering the U.S. Opioid Epidemic, according to a recent announcement, as covered by UBNow. UB issued a statement affirming their commitment:
We commit to the goals of the Opioid Action Collaborative of the NAM, and look forward to collaborating with our partners in the Action Collaborative to generate groundbreaking evidence on safe prescribing practices and the causes, prevention and treatment of opioid use disorders.
The Action Collaborative is a public-private partnership of more than 100 organizations, including the American Heart Association, Mayo Clinic, Yale School of Medicine, and numerous other esteemed groups, that share the goal of merging knowledge and forming solutions to reduce opioid misuse.
Faculty and researchers at UB’s Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences and Clinical Research Institute on Addictions (CRIA) have already made significant efforts in combatting the opioid crisis and will continue to progress in collaboration with NAM.
