A group of investigators from the University of Kentucky (UK) is part of a new team dedicated to substance use disorder research at the university. These researchers combined their years of expertise to ensure UK takes a holistic approach when addressing substance use disorder in the Commonwealth.
Recently, select members of this team have been invited to present at the National Rx Drug Abuse and Heroin Summit in Atlanta, GA and will be presenting their findings later this month.
Dr. Svetla Slavova of the University of Kentucky College of Public Health, along with Dr. Trish Freeman, Dr. Jeff Talbert, and Dr. Chris Delcher, all of the UK College of Pharmacy, will discuss specific changes to Kentucky law, potential impacts to patient care, and the expanded use of prescription data for public health surveillance.
