The leaders in Colorado’s fight against the opioid epidemic gathered at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus for the Colorado Consortium for Prescription Drug Abuse Prevention’s annual meeting. Attorney General Cynthia Coffman, a longtime supporter of the Consortium, spoke to the audience about her office’s work fighting the opioid epidemic and the impact the Consortium has made.
The Consortium brings together government leaders, local and state officials, public health experts, law enforcement, and many more to coordinate Colorado’s response to the opioid crisis. CU Skaggs School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences professor, Robert Valuck, PhD, is the Consortium’s director.
“We could not do this without Dr. Valuck and the Consortium and the strong team that he has put together here at CU. We use the University and the Consortium as a source of information and expertise” Coffman said.
