On July 25-26, the Region E SORH Partnership Meeting was held in Bellingham, WA. NOSORH would like to thank the Washington Office of Rural Health for hosting the meeting. Region E was joined by Emily Dilley, Director of Marketing at Columbus Community Hospital in Wisconsin, who presented on Project C.L.E.A.N. (Communities Eliminating the Abuse of Narcotics) – Opioid Abuse Prevention Program. Project C.L.E.A.N. is a partnership between local community leaders (healthcare professionals, law enforcement, school officials and community members) to enhance awareness and understanding of opioid use and abuse. The project is multifaceted and includes Emergency Department collaboration and safeguards, education to high school students and communities, and physician partnerships and best practices.
