NDEWS Coordinating Center
NDEWS Presents are monthly webinars convened by the NDEWS Coordinating Center to explore emerging drugs and timely drug-related topics. Future webinars will offer in-depth reviews of newly detected drugs, timely drug issues or trends, and events in specific geographical areas. Webinars may also be convened to explore innovative research and resources for better understanding changes in drug use and drug use trends in the United States.
The National Drug Early Warning System (NDEWS) monitors emerging drug use trends to enable health experts, researchers, and concerned citizens across the country to respond quickly to potential outbreaks of illicit drugs such as heroin and to identify increased use of designer synthetic compounds. NDEWS is funded under NIDA Cooperative Agreement U01DA038360, awarded to CESAR at the University of Maryland (UMD). Opinions expressed by participants in the NDEWS webinars may not represent those of CESAR, UMD, or NIDA.
