The Coalition has developed a plan to address the epidemic through treatment, prevention, harm reduction, and supply reduction. The VISTA position will help both the Board and the Coalition move this work forward. The Coordinator will help the Coalition seek funding opportunities, develop drug education materials, conduct community surveys, participate in research and data collection, plan and participate in community events and collaborate with county agencies and organizations.
