In the Field
Like many other states, Tennessee is facing an opioid epidemic. As part of their Prevention for States activities, the Tennessee Department of Health chose to host three community summits and engaged AIR to serve as a facilitator for these workshops in Nashville, Knoxville, and Memphis in April 2018.
Although progress is being made, each day in Tennessee, at least three people die from an opioid-related overdose. AIR is working with the Tennessee Department of Health to convene summits across the state, for which it will review current opioid-related data, discuss the relevance and analysis of data, and develop preliminary plans to shape the strategic direction for intervention activities.
Last year alone, over 2,000 people in Massachusetts died from an opioid involved overdose. In partnership with the Middlesex County District Attorney’s Office, AIR developed a cross-system study to develop locally-relevant and research-informed strategies to reduce and prevent opioid misuse.
Title I, Part D of the 1965 Elementary and Secondary Education Act allocates funds to states and school districts to improve educational services for neglected and delinquent youth. This study, prepared by AIR for the U.S. Department of Education's Office of Planning, Evaluation and Policy Development, was designed to better understand how state and local agencies and facilities use Part D funds for services in support of these youth.
