Food For Thought: The Hidden Costs of the Opioid Epidemic and Solutions to Fighting It

Your Speaker: Dr. Adam Bruggeman M'03
Your Moderator: Marc Strode M'98

There's a national crisis in opioid use. The deaths, costs, and subsequent lawsuits have become front-page articles for many publications and news outlets. What hasn't been covered is the long-term impact of opioid use on our society. The intersection of a coronavirus pandemic and the opioid epidemic has led to an unprecedented mental health crisis. This new crisis is leading to significant health care utilization and costs while also decreasing workforce productivity. Join speaker Dr. Adam Bruggeman M'03 and moderator Marc Strode M'98 as Food For Thought explores the opioid epidemic from the perspective of those living with chronic opioid dependence, the broader mental health crisis, and possible solutions to reduce healthcare costs.
