The Opioid Epidemic – there has been a sharp increase in opioid use in the last several years partially driven by over prescribing. Since 1999 the rate of overdose deaths has quadrupled and drug overdose is the leading cause of accidental death. Our co-sponsored event will explore the roots of the problem, current resources and further expectations. Healthcare providers and institutions have been and will continue to be at the center of the solution.
