Alumna Madeline Frost MPH Thesis Work Recognized by ASPPH

Congratulations to Health Services MPH alumna ('17) Madeline Frost, whose MPH thesis research on syringe-exchange clients is featured in the December 14 Association of Schools and Programs of Public Health Friday Letter!

“Syringe-exchange programs are a crucial part of the public health response to the opioid crisis,” Ms. Frost said. “They not only help prevent the spread of infectious diseases, but are also a setting in which we can connect people who may not have other contact with the health care system to evidence-based treatment for opioid use disorder.”

The study team also included other University of Washington School of Public Health faculty, including Health Services faculty Dr. Caleb Banta-Green and UW PhD Program in Health Services Program Director Dr. Emily Williams, of the Puget Sound Research & Development - US Department of Veterans Affairs.
