BLOOMINGTON -

Three Indiana University centers will share $45,000 of a $200,000 federal Health Resources and Services Administration planning grant as part of the Indiana Rural Opioid Consortium.The Indiana Rural Health Association is organizing plans to address opioid abuse in rural Indiana communities.

Rural Engagement at IU Bloomington, the Bowen Center for Health Workforce Research and Policy at the IU School of Medicine, and the Center for Public Health Practice at the Richard M. Fairbanks School of Public Health at IUPUI will be participating.

"Even with increased national attention and the addition of select prevention and treatment facilities throughout Indiana, opioid use disorders remain a chronic, persistent and very serious public health concern in the state, including rural areas," Indiana Rural Health Association Executive Director Don Kelso said in a news release.

Indiana University will work to identify opportunities and gaps in prevention and treatment, a workforce plan and a framework for community-based programs to address stigma.
