Colorado State Epidemiological Outcomes Workgroup

The Colorado State Epidemiological Outcomes Workgroup (SEOW) is a network of state agencies and data experts brought together to examine the patterns, context, and impact of substance use.  To effectively examine these complex issues, participation by experts across state agencies is crucial.   The Colorado SEOW is associated with the Attorney General’s Office as the data committee for the Substance Abuse Task Force. This unique relationship allows the SEOW to provide key leaders and legislators with information on substance use trends and to help inform the allocation of resources.  

The Colorado SEOW is charged with four core tasks: identify, analyze, profile, and share data from existing state and local sources to create data products that are meaningful and useful.

The SEOW meets monthly on the third Thursday of the month to discuss and process data and to make decisions on data products to be shared with the general public.
