BLOOMINGTON -

Indiana University has announced 15 new projects for phase two of its Responding to the Addictions Crisis Grand Challenge. The school announced the funding as it marked the one-year anniversary of the $50 million effort.

The phase two projects will cover areas including telehealth recovery, the use of cannabinoids in fighting the epidemic and the public stigma of addiction. Phase one involved 16 projects, many of which, the school says, have already reported results. IU Associate Vice President For Strategic Research Initiatives Faith Kirkham Hawkins says ongoing work includes public forums telling stories of addiction to reduce stigma, surveys to inform policy recommendations and discussions with Indiana's congressional delegation.

The five-year effort is Indiana University's third Grand Challenges initiative. The school is partnering with IU Health, Eskenazi Health and others on the work.
