Dr. Pooja Lagisetty with the Institue for Healthcare Policy and Innovation

at University of Michigan. Up to $455,000 in grants are available for

Michigan-based organizations willing to try new but proven approaches to

tackling a national opioid crisis. In April, the Blue Cross foundation

granted $75,000 to a University of Michigan doctor-pharmacist

collaborative that will serve about 50 patients. Dr. Pooja Lagisetty, lead

investigator for the study, said the goal is to learn whether a specialized

pharmacist at a UM primary care clinic, the East Ann Arbor Health Clinic,

can help primary care doctors and their patients better manage chronic

pain among patients who take “risky” levels of opioids.
