The Pittsburgh region is at the center of an epidemic. But it isn’t an infectious disease. It’s an insidious illness that has been quietly spreading in our communities, killing more people each year than car crashes. It’s opioid drug overdoses.

The University of Pittsburgh Graduate School of Public Health is piloting six research projects to address the gaps in our knowledge of the opioid epidemic in a year-long initiative expected to lead to much larger life-saving efforts.
