Please join the American Academy of Political and Social Science (AAPSS) and the Institute for Research on Poverty at the University of Wisconsin for a webinar on the societal consequences of the opioid epidemic, particularly as they affect child well-being. The conversation will draw from findings and insights from the most recent volume of the AAPSS journal, The ANNALS, which uses data from local, state and federal sources to investigate how opioid use disorder impacts the effectiveness of our education system, strains social services including child welfare agencies, and creates fiscal burdens across social welfare infrastructure. Each of the panelists contributed to the volume.
