The Opioid Settlement Technical Assistance Collaborative invites local governments in Michigan who have or will receive Opioid Settlement Funds to join us at this month’s session. This webinar will provide an overview of the Opioid Settlement Technical Assistance Collaborative by a panel of presenters from the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, Michigan State University, the University of Michigan, and Wayne State University.
Communities across Michigan are receiving funds from recent opioid settlements that should be used to support evidence-based programs for preventing or treating opioid-related harms.This monthly series of educational webinars is organized and hosted by the Opioid Settlement Technical Assistance Collaborative established by the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, Michigan State University, the University of Michigan and Wayne State University. The goal of this series is to share information and assist county, city, and township officials who have received settlement funding and are involved and/or interested in learning more about evidence-based practices and strategies to help remediate opioid overdoses in their communities.
