Working Together to Find Solutions to the Opioid Crisis

On August 24th, 2018, Healthy Tennessee held a first of its kind summit in Nashville to bring together stakeholders in healthcare with the mission of finding solutions to end the opioid crisis.

Our program included senatorial candidates Congressman Marsha Blackburn and former TN Governor Phil Bredesen, as well as gubernatorial candidates former Nashville Mayor Karl Dean and businessman Bill Lee. Three panels of experts convened to speak on the challenges of fighting opioid abuse around Tennessee, fentanyl and counterfeit drugs, and public-private partnership cooperation.

We are grateful to our sponsors — the Partnership for Safe Medicines, Nektar, Acadia, and the Blue Cross Blue Shield of Tennessee Health Foundation — for making this incredible gathering of individuals possible.
