This project was completed as part of a partnership between the League of Minnesota Cities and the University of Minnesota’s Resilient Communities Project (http://www.rcp.umn.edu). The goal of this project was to develop a deeper understanding of the role “at-home” drug disposal products may play in combating the opioid crisis, and that cities may play in administering and promoting drug disposal methods. League of Minnesota Cities project lead Rachel Walker collaborated with graduate and postdoctoral students in the RCP Fellows Program to conduct a literature review, develop a logic model, design and administer a follow-up online survey to city officials who received drug disposal bags, create interview guides for city officials and the drug disposal bag company, and interview a legislative representative with experience leading efforts to address the opioid crisis. A final student report and presentation are available. A videorecording of the students' final presentation is also available at https://vimeo.com/418526530.
Report completed by graduate and postdoctoral students as part of the RCP Fellows Program in Spring 2020.
This project was supported by the Resilient Communities Project (RCP), a program at the University of Minnesota whose mission is to connect communities in Minnesota with U of MN faculty and students to advance community resilience through collaborative, course-based projects.
