Litmus Awarded Contract with Bronx County DA

As part of the Comprehensive Opioid, Stimulant, and Substance Abuse Program sponsored by the United States Department of Justice, Director of the Litmus Program, Angela Hawken, and her team have been awarded a contract with the Bronx County District Attorney’s Office to identify approaches for earlier detection of and improved system responses to persons with opioid use disorder (OUD). Researchers from the Marron Institute’s Litmus team and NYU Langone’s Department of Population Health will partner with the DA’s Office and collaborating agencies in developing evidence and data-informed plans to better characterize OUD in the county, facilitate early detection of those with OUD who would benefit from targeted interventions, design rapid referral programs for community resources, and support local capacity for data management and infrastructure.
