Anika Alvanzo, assistant professor in the Division of General Internal Medicine, participated as a rapporteur and panelist at the National Academies of Sciences Engineering and Medicine’s Workshop on Integrating Infectious Disease Considerations with the Response to the Opioid Epidemic on March 12. Speakers presented on how the opioid epidemic has changed the epidemiology of infectious disease and participants discussed strategies to prevent and treat infections in people who inject drugs, especially ways to work efficiently though the existing public health and medical systems.
