IPA is partnering with the Alliance of Coalitions for Change (AC4C) to present on the emerging public health crisis of opioid abuse and the role health care professionals have to help combat the trends of increasing abuse.
Attendees will then discuss local strategies for collaboration and solutions to this multifaceted problem.
The target audience includes: pharmacists, physicians, dentists, nurses, social work and treatment programs, law enforcement, substance abuse coalitions and interested stakeholders.
Angie Asa-Lovstad, AC4C Director, and Al Fear, Cedar Rapids Police Officer, will serve as the facilitator and presenter.
