Shannon MonnatShannon Monnat, Lerner Chair for Public Health Promotion, was cited in the ConvergenceRI story "What is the best way to measure success in efforts to combat drug ODs?" "I caution against over-focus on opioids," says Monnat. "Opioids are simply the drug of [the] day. As we know in upstate New York, in many of our rural communities, meth is more prevalent. We must tackle root causes, which also drive suicide, alcohol-related deaths and more." 05/15/18
