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.
