About This Project

This study will conduct surveillance of digital data sources to identify and characterize illicit marketing, distribution and sale of prescription stimulants directly to the public via Twitter. We will use cloud-based computing and advanced machine learning to conduct statistical, network and geospatial analysis to explore this growing public health threat. Importantly, results of this study can have a direct impact and will be shared with regulators to better protect consumers.
