Since 2006, the State Epidemiologic Outcomes Workgroup (SEOW) has been providing epidemiologic services to the Alcohol and Drug Abuse Division (ADAD) of the Hawaiʻi Department of Health. The SEOW has evolved to focus on underage drinking and substance use due to the focus of the federal grant from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA): Strategic Prevention Framework Partnerships for Success (SPF-PFS). Based at the University of Hawaii Myron B. Thompson School of Social, the SEOW welcomes all stakeholders interested in using epidemiologic data to inform public health planning. The SEOW hosts a quarterly meeting where individuals/organizations have the opportunity to share information about their substance use data.
