Bizzell Wins Two 2023 MUSE Creative Awards for Public Health Projects
Bizzell was awarded two 2023 MUSE Creative Awards; a Gold award for a video and Silver award for a publication, both designed to support the National Institute on Drug Abuse Clinical Trials Network Dissemination Initiative, which aims to reduce the gap that exists between the publication of research on treatment of substance use disorders and implementation in clinical practice.
This year, Bizzell received the top honor of a Gold MUSE Creative Award in the Video-Educational category for the Reducing the Risks of Fentanyl in the U.S. This video was created in collaboration with the University of Pennsylvania Center for Addiction Medicine and Policy in response to rising rates of drug overdose deaths involving opioids. The video also stresses that everyone can be a first responder by carrying naloxone.
Bizzell also won a Silver MUSE Creative Award in the Publication category for the What is Fentanyl Infographic. This infographic was produced in response to the more than 80,000 opioid overdose deaths that occurred in 2020 driven by the illegally produced fentanyl that contaminates illegally produced opioids and benzodiazepines, as well as cocaine and synthetic cannabinoids. Additional information is provided regarding the impact of fentanyl on minorities, the need for broad-reaching awareness and education about the risks of fentanyl exposure, the warning signs of a possible overdose, how to reverse an overdose, and the use of naloxone.
