National Opioid Leadership Summit 2019

Opioid use disorder isn’t contained by the walls of a cell, hospital or treatment center—and our interventions can’t be either. On June 25, 2019, the Public Health Institute hosted U.S. Surgeon General Jerome Adams and colleagues from across the country in Sacramento to learn about, share and collaborate on real solutions to the opioid crisis that bridge the criminal justice, health care and public health sectors. Funders, national leaders and local innovators from across the country gathered for a solution-driven summit meant that sparked  new ideas and new collaborations, all presented through TED-style talks, keynotes and interactive breakouts.

Keynote: VADM Jerome M. Adams, MD, MPH, Surgeon General of the United States
