'Do I Need This Pill?' Understanding Pain and Prescription Drugs Webinar

Thursday, December 7

Whether acute or chronic, poor pain treatment is a contributing factor to today’s opioid crisis. Please join the HHS Partnership Center when we host David Thomas of the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) to present on a webinar designed especially for faith-based and community leaders about the nature of pain, as well as new and healthy strategies for pain management. Increase your knowledge about how pain works, how opioids work for pain, and why these drugs are so addictive. Dr. Thomas will also talk about the influx of dangerous synthetics that are increasing the risk of overdose for youth and other vulnerable populations.
