Opioids: Addressing the Epidemic and Debunking Myths
When: Thursday, March 21, 6:30 – 8:30 p.m.
Location: Calvary Church (LC-1300 Auditorium) — 5801 Pineville-Matthews Rd.
The Bridging the Difference community engagement series will tackle a tough subject in our community — opioids.
What are opioids? Opioids are a class of drugs that include the illegal drug heroin, synthetic opioids such as fentanyl and pain relievers available legally by prescription such as oxycodone (OxyContin®), hydrocodone (Vicodin®), codeine, morphine and many others.
There is so much misinformation and misunderstanding out there —- stigmas and stereotypes. This is a real issue in our community, and Bridging the Difference is tackling this in March.
Join us for an evening of education and understanding as we continue Bridging the Difference.
WBTV’s Molly Grantham will serve as the event’s moderator.
Dr. Paul Roman Chelminski, MD, MPH, FACP will deliver a State of the Issue presentation.
A dynamic panel will discuss personal journeys as well as address the issue in Charlotte.
Group feedback and discussion.
