Multimillion Dollar NIH Grant to Help Reduce Opioid Use & Get Care to People Who Need It
Bronx, NY (June 11, 2019)—In New York State the numbers are staggering: in 2017, there were 3,224 opioid-related deaths and in 16 of New York’s counties, the number of overdose deaths is nearly double the national average. To tackle this crisis, theNational Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) is dedicating $86 million—to studying new ways to get resources in these 16 counties to people most in need. $4 million dollars will go toMontefiore Health System andAlbert Einstein College of Medicine.
