Peters publishes in American Journal of Criminal Justice
Professor David Peters published in the most recent issue of American Journal of Criminal Justice. Peters authored the article "Prescription Opioid Resiliency and Vulnerability: A Mixed-Methods Comparative Case Study" with Professor Andy Hochstetler of Iowa State University and Professor Shannon Monnat of Syracuse University.
Their article examines why, despite declines in prescription opioid overdoses, rural areas continue to have higher prescription opioid overdose rates than urban areas and aims to understand why high overdose places were resilient to the prescription opioid overdose crisis (better than predicted), while others were vulnerable (worse than predicted).
