Prescription Drug Safety Network Summit
Prescription Drug Safety Network Summit
On May 6-7, the Prescription Drug Safety Network will convene partners in our nation’s capital to learn, share, and explore how prevention education is playing a powerful role in moving the needle on prescription drug misuse nationwide. Join experts, policymakers, and forward-thinking organizations as we examine strategies for curbing opioid misuse & abuse and tactics for maximizing prevention efforts in the community.
The 2019 Annual Summit promises to be two days packed with:
Discover new solutions and tactics to integrate into your prescription drug safety strategy
Learn from best-in-class case studies about developing a comprehensive plan to curb opioid abuse and misuse at the local and national level
Explore the latest research on youth prevention and emerging K-12 education standards
Connect with peers and industry leaders through networking events
A first-of-its-kind public-private partnership, the Prescription Drug Safety Network is a national coalition of healthcare organizations, pharmaceutical manufacturers, distributors, pharmacies, foundations, and state leaders committed to empowering Americans with the knowledge and skills to make safe and healthy decisions about prescription medications.
The U.S. opioid epidemic has put our country in a state of public health emergency. So far, many of the efforts to address this crisis have been focused on increasing response and expanding access to treatment. EVERFI created the Prescription Drug Safety Network (PDSN) to bring together partners committed to getting ahead of the problem through population-level prevention. Our mission is to raise awareness at a national level and bring an evidence-based curriculum to students at scale.
Two Days of Learning, Innovation, and Inspiration
