We cover a lot of important policy topics at APPAM—this one on the opioid crisis is particularly meaningful | APPAM Leadership Blog Series

I know a lot about opioids. More than your average joe, anyway. As an idealistic college grad in the late 1990’s, I was positive that social work was the path for me. I wanted to get some direct service experience, then go into an Masters of Social Work program and go about my merry way, trying to make a difference in the world. We cover a lot of important policy research and issues at APPAM—but this one is particularly meaningful.

Allies, Adversaries, or Strange Bedfellows? The Relationship Between Research, Politics, & Policy

Over 100 people attended and 500 people viewed the APPAM and Mathematica Policy Research roundtable/webinar, Allies, Adversaries, or Strange Bedfellows? The Relationship Between Research, Politics, & Policy on Wednesday, July 18, 2012. The panel included Paul Decker, Mathematica CEO; Susan Dentzer, editor-in-chief of Health Affairs; Chuck Clapton, minority health policy director, Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions Committee; Judy Feder, professor of public policy, Georgetown University and health policy fellow, Urban Institute; and Wendell Primus, senior policy adviser in the Office of the House Minority Leader. The panel took questions from the live audience and from web viewers after an initial discussion about the role research plays in the policy process.

This will be the first in a series of forums and events jointly hosted by APPAM and its institutional members designed to help better connect the worlds of research and policy. Upcoming events will feature additional institutional members and focus on a wide range of topics and interest areas.
