Staci Hepler receives NIH grant

Staci Hepler received an NIH R01 grant titled “Spatio-temporal Methods for Surveillance of the Opioid Syndemic”. As part of this grantStaci and a team of researchers from Wake Forest Health Sciences, Emory University, The Ohio State University, and Nationwide Children’s Hospital, will develop statistical methods to better leverage and integrate multiple imperfect surveillance outcomes on different spatial and/or temporal scales to comprehensively estimate levels of opioid misuse over space and time. This work will advance small area estimation of the opioid syndemic, improving epidemiological understanding and providing valuable information for policymakers.
