Research Seminar Series

The opioid epidemic in the U.S. presents substantial challenges to public health experts, policymakers, researchers, and clinicians. Increases in use and misuse of prescription opioids, often followed by increases in heroin use, have been the precursor to increasing trends in opioid overdose deaths, the hepatitis C virus (HCV), HIV, and other co-morbidities. 

During the Tufts Public Health and Community Medicine Research Seminar Series, local and nationally renowned experts present on the latest information on the opioid epidemic, related fallout or syndemics, ongoing research, and potential responses.
