This event is hosted by the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.
The symposium will bring together leaders in practice and research from across the country to develop a new vision for a public health response to the opioid epidemic. A hallmark of this event will be an integrated focus on prevention, harm reduction, treatment, and progressive law enforcement solutions. The Bloomberg American Health Initiative was created in 2017 from a gift from Bloomberg philanthropies to JHBSPH. The Initiative is committed to addressing some of the leading threats to American health. The initiative has five focus areas, including addiction and overdose.
