Opioid Symposium & Code-a-thon

Dec. 6 & 7, 2017

Washington, D.C.

The Symposium

The Symposium will bring federal, state, and local stakeholders charged with addressing the opioid epidemic together to share insights, promising practices, and innovative methods using technology and data. The symposium will showcase promising practices in data and technology that have improved outcomes in communities across the country that state and local leaders can bring back to their communities.

The Code-a-Thon

The purpose of the Code-a-Thon is to develop data-driven solutions to the opioid epidemic using federal, state, and local (city, county) datasets.  Our plan is for solutions identified at the code-a-thon to be implemented and used to address the opioid crisis.
