Do I Need This Pill? Understanding Pain and Prescription Drugs
Thursday, December 7, 2017 | 12–1 p.m. Eastern Time
Join the HHS Partnership Center for a webinar exploring the impact of poor pain treatment on today's opioid crisis. Dr. David Thomas of the National Institute on Drug Abuse will share information designed especially for faith-based and community leaders about the nature of pain, and new and healthy strategies for pain management. This webinar will help participants increase their knowledge about how pain works, how opioids work for pain, and why these drugs can be so addictive. Dr. Thomas will also discuss the influx of dangerous synthetics that are increasing the risk of overdose for youth and other vulnerable populations.
