The Poe Center for Health Education and the NC Medical Society Alliance will host two luncheon conferences in Raleigh to examine the opioid crisis and explore collaborative solutions. The first will be held in Raleigh on Sept. 14 and will include the Poe Center’s Annual Meeting where incoming and outgoing Board Members will be recognized and community members who contribute to children’s health and education in North Carolina will be honored. The second will be held in Greensboro on Sept. 15.
At both meetings the keynote speaker will be former Los Angeles Times reporter and national speaker, Sam Quinones, author of the book, “Dreamland: the True Tale of America’s Opiate Epidemic.”
A panel of local experts in Raleigh and Greensboro will discuss the impact of opioids in their communities and the opportunities for change. The meetings are approved for 3.0 CMEs, which fulfills the North Carolina Medical Board’s licensing requirement for opioid prescribing education.
The Poe Center has copies of “Dreamland: The True Tale of America’s Opiate Epidemic” available for purchase for $20 each. Conference attendees will have the opportunity to have their books signed by Sam Quinones.
