Vital Talks – Turning the Tide on the U.S. Drug Overdose Crisis
We are pleased to invite you to a discussion on one of the most pressing public health issues in the United States today–the drug overdose crisis. The event will take place on Wednesday, May 8, 2019, 8:30 a.m. – 9:45 a.m. at Vital Strategies’ headquarters, 100 Broadway in New York City.
Daliah Heller, Vital Strategies’ Director of Drug Use Initiatives, will moderate a discussion between Tracie Gardner, Legal Action Center’s Vice President of Policy Advocacy, and Dr. Chinazo Cunningham, Professor of Medicine and Associate Chief of the Division of General Internal Medicine at Albert Einstein College of Medicine and Montefiore Health System.
Vital Strategies’ first U.S. initiative is focused on drug overdose, now the leading cause of death for people under age 50 in the country. A global health organization with a proven track record of saving lives around the world, Vital Strategies is the lead partner in Bloomberg Philanthropies’ $50 million initiative to prevent overdose deaths.
Our speakers will discuss the current crisis and how a public health approach is needed to turn the tide on the U.S. drug overdose epidemic.
