Tackling the Opioid Abuse Crisis:
Regional Approaches & Regional Collaboration
Monday, November 9, 2015 8:00 – 11:30 a.m. The Seaport Hotel, Boston, MA
On November 9, 2015, The New England Council will host a Regional Opioid Abuse Forum at the Seaport Hotel in Boston. The goal of this half-day event is to highlight the innovative private and public sector approaches to tackling the opioid abuse crisis in our region, and to identify opportunities for collaboration, both between the public and private sectors and among the New England states.
The forum will feature remarks from U.S. Senator Ed Markey (D-MA), Governor Charlie Baker (R-MA), and Governor Maggie Hassan (D-NH). The program will also feature two panel discussions: one highlighting innovative approaches to combating abuse in the private sector, and the second highlighting some of the initiatives by state and federal government to combat abuse.
