Navigating the evolving opioid crisis: A conversation with House Committee on Energy and Commerce Republican Leader Greg Walden (R-OR) – AEI – American Enterprise Institute: Freedom, Opportunity, Enterprise23rd February 2019
Last October, the SUPPORT for Patients and Communities Act was signed into law, providing much-needed resources for individuals and communities struggling with opioid addiction. However, America’s opioid crisis continues to evolve with new challenges emerging. As a new Congress begins, how might policymakers work together to ensure the success of previous policies while continuing to investigate areas of need?
Join AEI for a discussion with House Energy and Commerce Committee Republican Leader Greg Walden (R-OR) on Congress’ ongoing efforts to combat opioid abuse. Following his remarks, a panel of experts will discuss major challenges to recovery, focusing in particular on how recent federal efforts are interacting with existing state and local initiatives to curb opioid misuse and promote stronger, healthier communities.
Join the conversation on social media with @AEI on Twitter and Facebook.
