Nerd Night Speaker Series: “Opioid Crisis – The Tip of the Iceberg”

Tuesday, Jun. 19 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Free

Scott Wakeham explores the current opioid epidemic and the contributory forces, both positive and negative.

Addiction, and the stigma surrounding it, will be discussed as a biopsychosocial disease. Although we may not think we’ve ever faced a public health epidemic like this before, perhaps we have. Parallels will be drawn between the HIV/AIDS epidemic of the 80’s/90’s, and will perhaps help us to understand the bigger issues at play.

Free to all! Open to the public.
