Greetings Advocates,

Today is Opioid Misuse Prevention Day. According to The University of Texas Health Science Center School of Biomedical Informatics, Houston sees one opioid-related death every 32 hours. As healthcare providers, we have the opportunity to support and treat individuals with opioid use disorder— especially in the place we call home #Houston.
Doctors for Change and local champions are hosting a free MAT Waiver training on Friday, September 18, 2020, in an effort to combat opioid use disorder in Harris County. Learn more about this opportunity and register by visiting the link below. Please share this widely to spread the word.
