Quarterly Newsletter: 1st Quarter (1/1/17 - 3/31/17)
We would like to introduce you to the new format of our quarterly newsletter. We hope you find it easier to see where our work is being used and shared. If there are ways we can make our newsletters more valuable for you and your organization, please let us know. In the meantime, thank you for your continued support.
Impact
In states large and small, our work continues to be actively used by a diverse group of public officials and stakeholders, resulting in better, more informed decision making.

For example, the governor of Wisconsin issued an executive order that, among other things, says the Department of Workforce Development shall review the WCRI's most recent report on interstate variation in opioid use and consult with the Workers Compensation Advisory Council to incorporate best practices into Wisconsin's workers compensation statutes.
