The topic will be about the Opioid Crises, the Emergency Department, and the Public Health Perspective. Featured speakers include Dr. Corey Waller of the Camden Coalition; Dr. Randall Williams, the director of DHHS in Missouri; Representative Holly Rehder, responsible for PDMP legislation that passed the Missouri House of Representatives; Rachel Winograd PhD, the director of a large grant to improve access to opioid use disorder treatment.
