Indiana University Invests in Fighting Opioid Abuse

Indiana University officials joined Governor Holcomb at the Statehouse today to announce a new effort funded by $50 million in university money to fight opioid abuse.

Per the Associated Press:

Indiana residents are more likely to die from a drug overdose than they are a car crash.

That statistic was offered by Indiana University officials October 10, 2017 when they joined Gov. Eric Holcomb at the Statehouse to announce a new effort funded by $50 million in university money to fight opioid abuse.

IU plans to use the money and its academic expertise to help collect data on the scope of the problem, train health care workers and craft better public policy.
