The COBRE on Opioids and Overdose is pleased to welcome Dr. Haiden Huskamp of Harvard Medical School.
In recent years, telemedicine for the treatment of mental health and substance use disorders has been viewed as a way to expand access to behavioral health treatment. While interest in this technology has been increasing, rates of telemedicine use remained low through 2019. In just a matter of weeks beginning in late March 2020, telemedicine use rates skyrocketed, as providers moved away from in-person care to telemedicine in an effort to reduce exposure to the COVID-19 virus. Please join us to learn more about Dr. Huskamp’s work on telehealth and behavioral health treatment before and after COVID.
