Attorney generals from across the US collectively sued opioid companies for their role in driving the opioid epidemic. Boston is receiving funding like many MA municipalities. This Spring the Boston Public Health Commission is conducting a feedback process to gather input from the community on how Boston should use the funds. Evans will provide broad support on opioid remediation. Example activities include: participation in RFP writing and selecting awardees, supporting implementation of programming, and/or producing the yearly report to the State.
