Dr. Angela G. Huskey leads all clinical aspects of drug testing for substance use treatment, pain management, behavioral health, and primary care. Additionally, she has spearheaded the use of aggregated and de-identified urine drug test (UDT) results to monitor the shifting landscape of drug use nationally. The use of this rich data source allows clinicians, first responders, and those responsible for public health to be quickly informed about these changes to help prevent overdoses and save lives.
Dr. Huskey led her Millennium Health colleagues and a team of experts in the development of a real-time surveillance system called the Emerging Threat Intelligence (ETI) Program™ to provide meaningful, real-time insights into dangerous and evolving trends in drug use nationwide and use these findings to aid the development of rapid health responses. Since the creation of the ETI Program, Millennium Health has entered collaborations with the CDC, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and the Ohio Department of Public Safety as well as multiple academic partners.
Formerly a pain and palliative care clinician, Dr. Huskey is a nationally recognized expert on drug testing and its role in clinical care. Her passion for its use in the care of individuals and in public health applications is driven by her clinical background and personal experience of caring for a loved one with a substance use disorder (SUD).
