Event description

Description

Addiction to opioids is all too real across the United States and here in southwest Missouri. Clearly an epidemic, it knows few limits and reaches families regardless of job class, bank account or personal connections. Community collaboration will be needed to address this crisis effectively. Please join us in Joplin as we identify the issues and potential solutions during the Missouri Opioid Crisis Summit in Southwest Missouri.


State and national healthcare and drug enforcement professionals are among those speaking.


We all care about our regional community, so let's work together to keep families, friends, and fellow citizens healthy and safe.
