Extension Resources on Opioid Epidemic - The ECOP Program Committee sought input from Extension directors/administrators on the potential need for a rapid response team to address the opioid epidemic. While the 5-question survey results did not warrant the creation of a rapid response team at this time, resources collected in the survey have been shared on eXtension at https://extension.org/74079.
