Communicating the Severity of the Opioid Crisis in Colorado
Authors: Adam Anderson
Tri-County Health Department (TCHD), one of the largest local public health agencies in the country, is located in Colorado and serves three of the Denver Metro counties—Adams, Arapahoe, and Douglas. Similar to many other communities across the country, TCHD has seen a growing problem with the recent opioid crisis. The agency needed a way to effectively engage and share data with communities within their jurisdiction to communicate this and other public health problems that they may be facing.
