About Engineering an End to the Opioid Epidemic Symposium
Despite increasing recognition of the opioid epidemic and the magnitude of the problem, there has not been a coordinated and effective response to it. There are more than 2 million Americans that are still opiate-dependent, and there are no well-established and reliable methods that have been established to help these individuals safely reduce and eliminate their use. In a clinical research symposium sponsored by Vitality Biopharma, physicians and researchers are meeting in Los Angeles to discuss what can be done today in the U.S., and rapidly, in order to reduce and eliminate use of opiate painkillers especially through use of cannabinoids.
