ON THE FRONT LINES: WORKING TOGETHER TO CURB THE OPIOID EPIDEMIC
More than 115 people die every day in the U.S. after overdosing on opioids. The crisis has galvanized providers, policymakers, patient advocates and many others who are exploring a range of treatments and possible solutions. What is most promising, and what are the biggest barriers that remain? Hear about how leaders from multiple arenas – government, healthcare, public health, the pharmaceutical industry, and law enforcement, for example – can work together to make a difference.
