However, progress in addressing this public health crisis is being met by community-driven action involving a cross-sector of stakeholders. Lessons learned can not only support continued progress on substance use disorders, but help drive efforts around the social determinants of health. In his address, Tym Rourke will provide an overview of how Systems of Care and coalition science are being leveraged to address the substance use epidemic, with guidance on the way forward for this and other healthcare challenges currently affecting community.
