The NDEWS SAG is a combination of federal and nonfederal representatives from across the country with expertise in a multitude of fields. The SAG meetings and ongoing discussions provide a unique opportunity to create a new paradigm for identifying and understanding emerging drugs and drug trends. Coordinating Center staff, NIDA, and SAG members work together to build and shape each NDEWS component. The SAG meet virtually once a year to discuss important current and emerging drugs and drug issues and Coordinating Center staff consult with SAG members as needed for advice and guidance on various issues.
