While the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health’s Opioid Symposium on Monday, October 30 has been planned for a while, it comes at an extremely relevant time as President Trump declared the Opioid Epidemic a Public Health Emergency yesterday. The symposium is being co-sponsored by the Bloomberg School and the Clinton Foundation. President Bill Clinton will be among the high profile speakers and panelists (follow the link for a full list of participants).
Scheduled from 10:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., the event will consider critical components needed to reduce the injury and death rates nationwide. Evidence-based recommendations that reflect the most current science will be the focus, and translating that evidence to action will be the goal.
While the event is at seating capacity, there will be a live webcast. I encourage you to join us virtually for this event.
