Description

About the Event:

Welcome to Health Innovators multidisciplinary panel discussion on Opioid Addiction.

Our goal is to bring together members of our community to network and learn more about the current state of Opioid Addiction: policy, research, treatment as well as challenges that patients, researchers, and providers are experiencing so that our audience can gain more awareness, and move to design and build solutions to help combat this public health crisis affecting the people of our community.

We will be featuring a multidisciplinary panel of local experts such as policy creators, substance abuse recovery providers as well as patient population representatives so that we can empathetically illuminate the perspectives and challenges each of these different stakeholders experiences.

• 6:00 pm - refreshments and networking

• 7:00 pm - Speaker presentation

• 8:00 pm - Refreshments and networking

Stay tuned for panel participants.

We recognize that the issue of Opioid Addiction is a sensitive issue affecting many in our community and expect all event participants to bring compassionate intent to the table.
