Leaders from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and North Carolina, including Governor Roy Cooper and Attorney General Josh Stein, will take the podium at the Opioid Misuse and Overdose Prevention Summit in Raleigh, NC on June 27-28, 2017. In addition, Secretary Mandy Cohen of the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), along with dozens of state, regional, and community leaders, are coming together to discuss the nationwide impacts of the current opioid epidemic and the integral role North Carolina's communities play in prevention efforts across the state.

The vision and goals of the Opioid Misuse & Overdose Prevention Summit is to:
Engage partners in North Carolina in active learning and meaningful discussion to build momentum behind strategic activities that complement overall state and local efforts around opioid misuse, addiction, and overdose death.
Educate and inform North Carolina partners on evidence-based/informed, promising, and innovative policies and practices that prevent opioid misuse, addiction, and overdose.
Energize, challenge, and connect North Carolina partners to build consensus and rally behind policy and programmatic interventions that focus on social determinants, healthcare, harm reduction, criminal justice, and community strategies around opioid misuse, addiction, and overdose death.
