Sentinel Community Epidemiologists (SCEs)
The NDEWS Coordinating Center has organized two types of local experts: Sentinel Community Epidemiologists (SCEs) and Community Epidemiologists (CEs). The SCEs are the point of contact for the 13 NDEWS Sentinel Community Sites. They work with Coordinating Center staff to prepare annual profiles on current drug use and abuse at their site and report on emerging drugs and drug trends. Both the SCEs and CEs are members of the NDEWS Network.
