The Penn State Center for Security Research and Education, in collaboration with Penn State Harrisburg, Penn State Homeland Security Programs, and the Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency, held a tabletop exercise that addressed first-responder and whole-community response and resilience to the ongoing opioid crisis.
Penn State Harrisburg faculty are dedicated to understanding this crisis and combating addiction in the state. To that end, the college will host two discussions related to the current opioid epidemic in Pennsylvania.
Penn State Harrisburg faculty are finding unique ways to educate students on how they can be a part of battling the opioid epidemic. Dr. Weston Kensinger is helping by providing tools to graduate students to make a positive difference. He hopes the students in his colloquium class — mostly working professionals — will take their newfound knowledge to the wider community.
