Event description

Description

Oregon Health Forum is pleased to host:

Dr. Esther Choo, M.D., M.P.H., Associate Professor, Department of Emergency Medicine, Oregon Health & Science University

Dr. Elizabeth Stuyt, Medical Director, Circle Program, Colorado Mental Health Institute at Pueblo and
Board President, National Acupuncture Detoxification Association

In her research, Dr. Elizabeth Stuyt has compared the brains of aborted or miscarried fetuses of women who had used marijuana during pregnancy with the brains of fetuses whose mothers did not use marijuana, and has found an increase in opiod reciptors in the brains of fetuses of mothers who used marijuana. Her research draws a connection between the spread of Opioid overuse, misuse and addiction that parallels the increasing legalization of marijuana.

Moderator: Jason Renaud, Board Member, Mental Health Assn. of Portland

Other panelists to be announced shortly.
