“Confronting Stigma to Respond to the Opioid Crisis”

presented by Colleen L. Barry, PhD, Co-Director, Center for Mental Health and Addiction Policy , Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health

Opioid overdoses are the leading cause of injury-related deaths in the U.S. and contribute to recent reversals in life expectancy gains. In the face of escalating mortality, what policies are critical to reverse the epidemic? Why are life saving medication treatments not more broadly utilized? Dr Barry will discuss how researchers are assessing the impact of stigma on public policy and clinical care, and what barriers must be overcome.
