Prescription Drug Abuse: Evidence Informing Action

Johns Hopkins University | Baltimore, Maryland

The Clinton Foundation's Health Matters Initiative (CHMI) and the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health (JHSPH) presented a two-part meeting on the nation's fastest growing drug problem – prescription drug misuse and abuse.  

On the afternoon of May 13, marking the one year anniversary of President Clinton's announcement of the Foundation's intent to address prescription drug misuse, CHMI joined JHSPH in Baltimore for a town hall focused on the application of evidence to inform action. The event brought together thought leaders from around the country to join the conversation and contribute their energy, ideas, and resources for scalable solutions.
