The California Health Care Foundation has selected the Public Health Institute’s Center for Health Leadership and Practice (CHLP) as the manager of the California Opioid Safety Network. This statewide network includes local coalitions, comprised of stakeholders including providers, public health officials, hospitals, law enforcement, consumers, advocates, and others working to reduce opioid overdose deaths in their communities.
Applications are now open for these coalitions to apply to the Accelerator Program. The program includes:
- Tools and training opportunities that will increase the impact of your outreach efforts and make data more accessible to your communities, and effective strategies for communicating about your community's issues to the public and to policy influentials
- Intensive coaching and support
- The opportunity to receive a full-time AmeriCorps VISTA member, trained by the network and assigned to your local site (salary and benefits paid by AmeriCorps)
