PittPharmacy_JanicePringle_3440Janice L. Pringle, PhD received funding from the PA Commission on Crime and Delinquency for Phase II of her Overdose Prevention study.

The goal of this project is to provide a public access web site that can support efforts within Pennsylvania counties to reduce overdoses and overdose deaths.

OverdoseFreePA is a public access website that includes 1) overdose death statistics in close-to-real-time; 2) presentations and curricula tailored to specific audiences (i.e., the public, Substance Use Disorder treatment professionals, criminal justice personnel, healthcare professionals, and school and community leaders); 3) strategies for building and maintaining community coalitions that address overdose prevention; 4) an expert Speaker’s Bureau;  5) information about recovery.

Pringle is an associate professor in the pharmacy and therapeutics department at the School of Pharmacy and director of Program Evaluation and Research Unit (PERU).
