HEAL Project Campaign Ads
The Department of Communication's Dr. Don Helme and Dr. Nicky Lewis are part of the group awarded the HEAL research grant that funds a multiyear study supported by the National Institute on Drug Abuse. This grant will go to testing the integration of prevention, overdose treatment, and medication-based treatment in communities hard hit by the opioid crisis. The ambitious HEALing Communities Study aims to reduce opioid overdose deaths by 40 percent over 3 years in participating communities.
Campaign ads are now out in Lexington in the surrounding area on billboards and bus advertisements.
