Substance Misuse


The mission of the Substance Misuse Community of Scholars is to lead efforts to mitigate the consequences of the opioid crisis and substance misuse issues in Tennessee through collaboration with faculty from multiple disciplines across the UT Knoxville campus, the UT System, and within our Tennessee communities. The goal of this Community of Scholars is to utilize the various experts and resources available at UT to conduct research and foster faculty and community engagement to rebuild the areas of our state that have been disproportionately affected by the recent increase in substance misuse related problems.

Fall Semester Meeting Schedule: The CoS will meet via Zoom on the 3rd Thursday of each month from 12:00-1:00 starting September 17th. If you are interested in attending, please email Diana Moyer at
