Join us in our aim to reduce opioid overdose deaths by 40 percent.
Already on the frontlines in researching and combating opioid abuse, the HEALing Communities Study places UK squarely among the country’s leaders in finding long-term, sustainable solutions to this epidemic. The study will leverage existing resources and initiatives, in partnership with communities, to implement strategies and set evidence-based standards that will become a national model for fighting the opioid epidemic.
As part of this effort, we expect to fill dozens of positions in 16 counties. These jobs include community coordinators, prevention specialists and peer prevention specialists.
