For every overdose death, many more nonfatal overdoses occur resulting in substantial emotional and economic impacts. Join the authors of this special issue of PHR  as they describe lessons learned from innovative surveillance activities under CDC’s Enhanced State Opioid Overdose Surveillance (ESOOS) program aimed to provide data on nonfatal and fatal opioid overdoses.

Featured speakers include Peter Rock, MPH, Associate Director Biomedical Data Science at the Institute for Biomedical Informatics (IBI) and a co-investigator on KIPRC’s CDC-funded Overdose Data to Action Program. Rock has several years of experience working in the field of overdose surveillance, specifically as it pertains to rapid public health surveillance systems such as syndromic surveillance and emergency medical services data.  His current work has focused on enhancing the state’s capacity for rapid overdose surveillance leveraging funding from CDC and NIH sponsored grants.
