Join us at the Rural Drug Addiction Research (RDAR) Center’s Seminar Series!

For our October Seminar Series event, we will highlight the work of both Dr. Brendan Jacka and Dr. Patience Moyo. Our presenters will give updates on results and planning for projects focusing on 1) how helping during opioid overdose impacts citizen responders as well as 2) opioid prescribing and nonpharmacologic treatment use for chronic pain in adults.

Brendan Jacka, PhD, is an investigator in epidemiology at the People, Place, and Health Collective at Brown University School of Public Health. Dr. Jacka’s research interests broadly encompass drug related outcomes, including the intersection of harm reduction, overdose prevention and treatment, and trauma-related research.

Dr. Patience Moyo is faculty within the Center for Gerontology and Healthcare Research at the Brown University School of Public Health. She is trained in pharmaceutical health services research and has expertise in the use of large administrative data to conduct epidemiologic and policy analyses. Her current research focuses on health services use, quality of care, and outcomes in the management of chronic pain and opioid addiction.
