Join the virtual National Drug Early Warning System Network

An email from Center for Substance Abuse Research (cesar@umd.edu):
You are cordially invited to become a part of the new National Drug Early Warning System (NDEWS) Network, a virtual community designed to share timely information on emerging drugs and changing drug use trends.

NDEWS is a NIDA-funded national public health surveillance system coordinated by the Center for Substance Abuse Research (CESAR) at the University of Maryland, College Park. NDEWS aims to provide the country with critically needed real-time information about changing drug use patterns. The project will focus on new drugs, such as synthetic cannabinoids and designer stimulants, as well as changes in the use of more traditional drugs, such as heroin and methamphetamine. For more information about NDEWS, please visit www.cesar.umd.edu.

A key component of NDEWS is the creation of the NDEWS Network, a virtual community of researchers, practitioners, and concerned citizens across the country who will be able to regularly share and discuss information about emerging drugs and changing drug use trends and assist with local NDEWS research.

To subscribe to the NDEWS Network electronic mailing list, send an email to listserv@listserv.umd.edu with subscribe ndews-network name-of-subscriber (where name-of-subscriber is your name) in the body of the email. This email should be sent from the email account that will be subscribed to the list.

If you know of others who would like to join the NDEWS Network email discussion list, please feel free to forward them this email.

If you have any questions about NDEWS or the NDEWS Network email discussion list, please contact us at ndews@umd.edu.
