Overseeing Opioid Response Grant in Southwest Missouri

Phenomenal afternoon spent at Jordan Valley Community Health Center in Springfield, MO touring their new behavioral health clinic. Dr. Nash is on the front lines of the opioid epidemic in Southwest Missouri providing innovative care to those with substance use disorder.

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention data show opioid deaths in Greene County increased to 31.6 per 100,000 people in 2015 from 8.6 per 100,000 in 2000. Nationwide, overdose deaths have tripled since 1999, according to the release.

Proud to be overseeing and collaborating with them on a $1M grant through Missouri Foundation for Health Access To Care initiative.
