Tonight we are discussing the United States Drug Enforcement Agency’s 360 Strategy and Initiative. Tonight our guests include David Gourley, Assistant Special Agent in Charge, Drug Enforcement Agency, Charleston District Office Victoria Oyewole, Class of 2018 & Amy Bateman, Class of 2018, University of Charleston School of Pharmacy
DEA’s 360 Strategy responds to the heroin and prescription opioid pill crisis. The 360 Strategy takes an innovative three-pronged approach to combating heroin/opioid use through:
(1) coordinated Law Enforcement actions against drug cartels and heroin traffickers in specific communities;
(2) Diversion Control enforcement actions against DEA registrants operating outside the law and long-term engagement with pharmaceutical drug manufacturers, wholesalers, pharmacies, and practitioners; and
(3) Community Outreach through local partnerships that empower communities to take back affected neighborhoods after enforcement actions and prevent the same problems from cropping up again
The mission of Forest of the Rain Productions is to expand the voices of the seldom heard in education, fair housing, parental/family engagement, academic research, the business of education, and civic involvement.
The University of Charleston School of Pharmacy offers its student pharmacists a technology-infused, dynamic, and rigorous curriculum that prepares graduates to practice in today’s rapidly changing health care environment.
