University of Bridgeport Symposium- Building Bridges: Healthcare Solutions to Prevent Opioid Addiction and Chronic Pain in ConnecticutArnold Bernhard Art and Humanities Center – University of Bridgeport Thursday,Oct 17 at 8am
The opioid crisis has hit Connecticut hard. As a result, opioid prescriptions for pain are diminishing, leaving pain patients with fewer treatment options. A long term public health strategy is required to treat pain, improve quality of life for patients and reduce lost productivity. This symposium will foster a deeper understanding of the opioid problem in the context of chronic pain, as well as to promote a pragmatic discussion about integration of conventional and complementary approaches for pain and addiction.
This important event will be a forum for approximately 150 leaders in health care, research, education, public health and policymaking who aim to improve knowledge, practice and legislation concerning pain and addiction in Connecticut. To maximize the impact of the discussion, we have recruited nationally recognized speakers who will address the opioid problem from multiple disciplines and perspectives.
This symposium will take place on Thursday, October 17th 2019 in the Arnold Bernhard Art and Humanities Center on the beautiful University of Bridgeport (UB) campus.
