NPs are often the first line of defense against drug use and addiction, particularly as we continue to address the opioid epidemic. Whether it’s treating patients in clinical settings, providing education to NP students or conducting SUD research, NPs are dedicated to raising awareness and are taking steps to promote healthy, substance-free living.
AANP is proud to partner with the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) on the NIDA Mentor-facilitated Training Award in Substance Use Disorders Science Dissemination and is pleased to announce that Laurel Hallock-Koppelman, DNP, FNP-C, APRN, has been selected as the recipient of this prestigious grant award!
With mentorship from Dr. Nicholas Gideonse, assistant professor of family medicine at Oregon Health & Science University, Dr. Hallock-Koppelman will develop and carry out a plan designed to increase clinical knowledge of the management of SUD. She will work with Dr. Gideonse to enhance collaboration between the emergency department and primary care providers in order to help fast-track entry to care.
Congratulations to Dr. Hallock-Koppelman. We look forward to seeing her work continue to progress our understanding of SUD treatment.
