Join us at the WSHA Annual Meeting to hear from our expert panelists about the opioid crisis and what part hospitals and health system leaders can play in stopping this epidemic. Registration closes on Wednesday, Oct. 18.
Everyday there’s another tragedy related to opioid use. Washington has one of the highest fentanyl overdose rates in the country, pushing it to the level of a public health crisis. Hospital leaders can have an impact on reducing opioid addiction and overdoses.
