Two Ways to Engage

The Opioid Response Project was created to achieve the collaborative, multi-faceted approach so crucial to tackling the opioid crisis in North Carolina. In partnership with the nc IMPACT Initiative and Blue Cross NC, an intensive two-year collaborative learning model was launched by the UNC School of Government, providing direct support to ten North Carolina communities working to enact an integrated and innovative policy and practice response to their local opioid crises. This project complements health and policy efforts at the state and local levels by offering resources to communities that are ready to implement best practices.
