Subject: CADCA Opioid Crisis Volunteer Position

Description:
Help us build a high-value resource commons for coalitions addressing the
opioid crisis

Be part of a nationwide network of individual volunteers, schools,
non-profits and other organizations that are building out a valuable
“wiki” with information, strategy templates, educational tools and other
digital resources that can be used freely used by other states or coalitions
that are striving to address the many different challenges of the opioid
epidemic. Many communities are striving to address this crisis, but far too
many are re-inventing the wheel and not taking advantage of resources that
others would be willing to share. Things are changing so quickly and there
are so many innovative efforts that are being attempted that traditional
research and information sharing practices are neither sufficient nor fast
enough.

Volunteers will search the internet for promising practices, educational
materials, policies, lessons learned, media, and supporting research on ways
to address specific parts of a comprehensive strategy toolkit for addressing
the opioid crisis. In addition to on-line searching and working from the many
documents and links already in the wiki, volunteers will have access to many
recordings of recent conference presentations on the opioid crisis and
details of presentations for events we have not attended but where the topics
and speakers are listed.

This 9-minute video shares more details. https://vimeo.com/195567154

Please email me, [log in to unmask], you're interested in
volunteering for 20 to 60 hours over the next 3 months to help build out this
so it can be shared for free with hundreds of coalitions at the CADCA
conference in February.
