In conjunction with the Scott County Strategic Prevention Framework Prescription Drugs Advisory Council, with funding provided by the Iowa Department of Public Health – Strategic Prevention Framework for Prescription Drugs grant and the State Targeted Response grant, we have set forth this effort to address prescription drug abuse and the opioid epidemic. We are partnering with local community leaders and agencies to educate the residents within the Quad City Area on this issue and what they can do about it. This is not just a national issue, but an issue that is impacting us here in our own backyard.
