Opiod Crisis

More than 115 people die a day in the U.S. from opioid-related overdoses, including prescription painkillers. If you think it can’t happen to someone you love, you are wrong. Join us as we learn more about the class of drugs known as “opioids”. Discover the different types of opioids and how they work in the body. Reasons for the opioid epidemic, state, and national trends, and strategies to address the opioid epidemic will also be discussed.

Presenters: Craige Wrenn, Department Chair of Pharmaceutical and Administrative Science, Professor of Pharmacology, and Sally Haack, Associate Professor of Clinical Sciences.
