The Opioid Response Network is housed with the Great Lakes Technology Transfer Centers in the Center for Health Enhancement Systems Studies at the University of Wisconsin Madison.

I help people like doctors, prevention specialists, and peer support workers across the state of Ohio connect with each other to get the training and resources they need to combat the opioid crisis.

I work with my union on a committee focused on abolishing the police at UW-Madison.
