Education. Training. Collaboration. Saving lives. These are the goals of the 2017 Mississippi Opioid and Heroin Summit – an opportunity for all of us to face the epidemic that touches our families, friends and loved ones. The 3-day summit will bring together 3 communities – public safety, public health, and the public. Hear from Sam Quinones who documented the epidemic as a journalist and authored dreamland. Learn about threats and trends from public safety officials who are tracking the supply of opioids and heroin. Listen to public health and treatment  advocates  discuss  the disease of addiction and the many tools available to prescribers and treatment professionals. Join with the families touched by addiction to hear stories of recovery and hope. Our goal is to give the audience the opportunity to be educated by speakers who have specific knowledge and expertise and their field with the intentions of taking that  information  and  increasing patient awareness and patient outcomes among our state.
