About the PDMP Center of Excellence, Brandeis University
Funded by grants from the U.S. Department of Justice, Bureau of Justice Assistance, the Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (PDMP) Center of Excellence was founded in 2010 at the Schneider Institutes for Health Policy, Brandeis University. The Center partners with the PDMP Training and Technical Assistance Center at Brandeis to combat the prescription drug abuse epidemic. The Center collaborates with a wide variety of PDMP stakeholders, including federal and state governments and agencies, universities, health departments, and medical and pharmacy boards. It is advised by an Expert Panel of nationally recognized professionals in addiction treatment, pain medicine, public health, and epidemiology. The expertise, experience and commitment of the Center’s staff and advisors make it a unique resource in the fight against prescription drug abuse.
