Fighting the Opioid Epidemic

Approximately 2,600 people have died in 2016 from opioid overdoses, according to Florida Medical Association CEO, Timothy J. Stapleton. Opioids are a severely dangerous addiction that needs to be addressed.

The best way to start conquering this issue is to get educated. The Emerald Coast Medical Association is assisting in the production of a CME event addressing this Drug Crisis in October. Not only can you earn CME credits, but you will learn how to change and save lives.
