Panel: Data Science Solutions to Combatting Opioid and Crime
Fri, Nov 15, 2:00 to 3:20pm, Sierra C, 5th Level
In today’s data science and “big data” era, researchers across disciplines are developing innovative ways to understand and address the current opioid epidemic and its related consequences, including crime and negative health outcomes. The proposed panel features two projects—the Delaware Opioid Metric Intelligence project (DOMIP – funded by the National Institute of Justice) and the Florida Drug-Related Outcomes and Tracking System (FROST- funded by the Bureau of Justice Assistance) that adopt such approaches to combat substance abuse in Delaware and Florida. Researchers from DOMIP and FROST will discuss the scientific value in integrating data from multiple sources and development of surveillance and mapping tools for combatting the opioid problem. DOMIP and FROST presenters will briefly discuss the objectives, current research, and impacts from their projects and will then answer targeted questions from the discussant and audience members.
