Making the Connections: Opioid Use
NOTE: Unfortunately, we just received word that Physician General for the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania Dr. Rachel Levine is needed by PA Governor Tom Wolf and will no longer be in attendance this evening. We are pleased to welcome Dr. Lauren S. Hughes, Deputy Secretary for Health Innovation at the Pennsylvania Department of Health, in her place.
Mayes College of Healthcare Business and Policy will hold its annual Making the Connections program, this year focusing on Policymakers Address the Opioid Epidemic. Hear from a person in recovery on how the system helps/hinders access to needed treatment. Then hear from policy leaders about how the opioid epidemic is being addressed within the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the City of Philadelphia.
Join the discussion on Opioid Use and use #MayesConnections in your posts.
