David Beier is pleased to be appointed to join public health colleagues in an Action Collaborative established by the National Academy of Medicine to address the challenges of the Opioid crisis. This impressive set of experts come from multiple disciplines. Especially important for this group is the mandate from NAM to craft actionable proposals. The depth of the epidemic and its complexity underlines the reality that no single policy reform can arrest the crisis. The team hopes and expects to be able to quickly reach a consensus to bold, new steps that will address parts of this public health emergency.
