The Trainee will be mainly assigned to support the New York HEALing Communities Study (HCS), an on-going, multi-site implementation science award to test the integration of evidence-based prevention, overdose treatment, and medication-based treatment in select communities affected by the opioid crisis (NIDA, UM1 DA049415) for which Dr. Lounsbury is a Co-Investigator. The HCS tests a comprehensive treatment model intended to foster systems change via coordinated partnerships among diverse providers of primary care, emergency services, behavioral health, pharmacy, and other community programs and services. Findings will establish best practices for integrating community-level prevention and treatment strategies that can be replicated by communities nationwide.
