National Conversation on the Opioid Crisis

Join the National Conversation on the Opioid Crisis in Women

Join us online Thursday and Friday, September 29–30, 2016, to be part of the national conversation on the opioid crisis in women. Use the hashtag #OWHOpioidSummit on Twitter and watch the webcast at to participate. We will be live tweeting the meeting on @womenshealth.

In response to the increasing impact of the opioid crisis on women, we are convening a national conversation to examine the unique prevention, treatment, and recovery issues for women who use, abuse, or overdose on opioids. This meeting will build upon the U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary’s opioid initiative, examining the unique and specific needs of women in the context of that epidemic. We will bring together policy experts, program staff, researchers, clinicians, and women with lived experience to foster a national conversation on best policies and practices to address these growing challenges.

Date: September 29–30, 2016

Time: 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. ET
