Have you heard of the opioid epidemic, but don’t know much about it? Or, perhaps you’ve heard of it and have been wondering what North Carolina is doing to address it – either way, we’ve got you covered at the Health Law Section Annual Meeting & Joint CLE with the Litigation Section! Come hear N.C. Attorney General Josh Stein speak about the opioid epidemic in North Carolina and beyond, including the scope of the problem, prevention strategies for physicians and other health care providers, the STOP Act and the Synthetic Opioid Control Act, supporting treatment and recovery services, and support for law enforcement.
Did we also mention that Pamela Morrison with Coastal Horizons Center in Wilmington will be on hand to make this a substance abuse CLE credit presentation, with a discussion about the treatment of substance use disorders and how legal professionals can help and get help. Please plan to join the Health Law and Litigation Sections for a joint CLE program Friday April 27, 2018 at the Greensboro Marriott Downtown, with presentations by Attorney General Stein, DHHS Secretary Mandy Cohen, and many other great speakers! You’ll receive 6 total CLE credits, including 1.0 hour ethics/professional responsibility, and 1.0 hour substance abuse/mental health.
