ASPPH Opioid Task Force Meets

The ASPPH Task Force on Public Health Initiatives to Address the Opioid Crisis, chaired by Rob Pack (East Tennessee), met last Thursday evening and all-day Friday. They were joined on Thursday night by Regina LaBelle, JD, the former chief of staff and senior policy advisor in the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP). On Friday, they met with Robin Koval, President and CEO of the Truth Initiative, and several of her colleagues. Most of the panel’s time was spent developing recommendations that will be shared with the courts hearing opioid litigation, and additional recommendations that will inform the Association’s advocacy agenda. A final report and set of recommendations are expected to be completed early this summer.
