OPIOID CRISIS: WHAT’S OUR ROLE IN ITS CONTROL?
Thanks to all who attended our April 11, 2018, Opioid Summit at the UIC Health Sciences Campus-Rockford. We had a great turnout, positive evaluations and an increase in interest in pursuing additional work in this area.
As a result of this summit, the planning committee is looking into the next steps, which will likely include another summit where we can share best practices and information about the prescription of opioids.
The UIC Health Sciences Campus-Rockford also will be a medication collection site on Saturday, June 9, 2018, where the community can dispose of any unwanted medications and keep them out of the hands of those who may misuse or abuse them.
Watch for more information about this program and others at the UIC Health Sciences Campus-Rockford.
