The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) have awarded the Minnesota Health Department with a $345,000 grant to help track and prevent opioid-involved overdoses. Minnesota was part of a larger CDC announcement that it’s awarding $12 million to 23 states and the district of Columbia. More than 500 Minnesotans died from opioid overdoses in 2015–that’s a 600-percent increase since 2000. The money will help to set up an “opioid dashboard”–a so-called one-stop shop for all opioid-related data. The dashboard is expected to launch in August.
