In order to address the issues of prescription drug abuse in Nevada and more effectively utilize the PDMP, this project will encompass multiple new types of analysis of the PDMP aggregate data. The grant creates “problem indicators” to identify populations at high risk of prescription drug addiction and abuse. Geographical analysis will enhance the Board of Pharmacy’s ability to identify “problem areas” (medical complexes, pharmacies, etc.) and this may allow for targeted interventions. For more information, contact Emmanuel Barthe at email@example.com or at 775-784-6334.

This year we are seeing a nationwide flu epidemic. As we begin this spring semester, we have already seen a high number of influenza cases on our campus. Based on guidelines from the CDC, we are asking students, faculty, or staff who develop flu like symptoms to stay home from school or work until 24 hours after their fever has resolved without the use of fever reducing medications. We are hopeful that these preventative actions will help decrease the spread of this flu virus. We are asking your cooperation as faculty in the following ways: 1) Faculty members are asked to be flexible with regard to student attendance policies and to not penalize a student for missing a class due to flu like symptoms. 2) Faculty are also asked to be flexible in assisting students who need to make up exams or assignments due to flu like illness. 3) It would be helpful to have as much course content on the web as possible so that students can keep up with their assignments. 4)Ask students who are ill with the flu to communicate with you via telephone or email. Students should not be asked to provide a doctor’s note as this will cause further exposure to other students. We thank you for your cooperation in our preventative efforts on our campus. Remember simple steps such as handwashing, covering coughs and sneezes, and avoiding touching eyes, nose, or mouth can help prevent the flu. It is also not too late to get a flu shot! Sincerely, Cheryl Hug-English M.D., Medical Director Student Health Center
