The Massachusetts Health Council began working with regional chambers in 2016 in regard to the opioid epidemic and its impact on businesses and workplaces. This one-page summary of the Council's work on this effort highlights their focus areas, including the Council's involvement in the New Bedford Area Chamber's Opioid Panel in October 2016. The Health Council also organized a half day conference in June 2016, titled "OUR WORKPLACES AND THE OPIOID EPIDEMIC" which provided practical information for employers while helping them to understand the nature of the opioid overdose epidemic from both the employer and employee perspectives. Several regional chambers attended the event. Conference materials are available for download.
