Webinar: Wastewater Testing for Public Health and Safety

Posted: 4/18/2017 (Local Events)

Over the past year, Mathematica Policy Research has been exploring the capacity of municipal wastewater testing to quantify opioid use in the United States. You are invited to join a webinar on May 16, 2017, for a symposium on The Potential of Wastewater Testing for Public Health and Safety, funded by the Laura and John Arnold Foundation. At this webinar, they will convene federal agency representatives; public health, child welfare, and law enforcement officials at the state and local level; and academic health and wastewater researchers. The goals of the daylong event will be to identify knowledge gaps that are hampering decision making about the opioid crisis, and to pinpoint how to advance the science of wastewater testing to meet real-world needs.

Symposium discussions will center on presentations and research briefs developed by ASPE, SAMHSA, NGA, Mathematica, and wastewater researchers from around the world. Symposium materials will be circulated in advance to all registered participants.
