The Poe Center for Health Education and the NC Medical Society Alliance will host a luncheon conference in Raleigh on September 14 and Greensboro on September 15 to examine the opioid crisis and explore collaborative solutions.

Keynote: The luncheons will feature former LA Times reporter and national speaker, Sam Quinones, author of the acclaimed book, Dreamland: The True Tale of America's Opiate Epidemic. Quinones will recount how prescription painkillers entangled with heroin led to the nation's deadliest drug plague in modern times.

Panel: A panel of experts will discuss the impact of opioids in their communities and the steps they are taking to combat the issue. A robust Q&A with the audience will explore collaborative solutions. The panel will include speakers such as members of law enforcement, the medical sector, preventative education, and investigative reporter Sam Quinones.

CEU credits offered for attendance at the Raleigh and Greensboro events.
