Opioid Crisis 2021

Labroots is pleased to announce the 2nd Annual Opioid Crisis Virtual Event taking place on November 3, 2021. The Opioid epidemic has been called the worst drug crisis in American history.  Join us as we discuss and exchange thoughts on the rise, spread, and control of Opioids.

Opioids are chemicals that bind to receptors in the brain and body associated with pain, reward, and addictive behaviors. Opioid medications are used by healthcare providers to relieve pain that cannot be treated with less powerful drugs. Common opioids include heroin and narcotic medications such as oxycodone, buprenorphine, morphine, codeine, methadone, and fentanyl. Opioid-related diseases are associated with overuse, misuse, and dependence on these drugs, and they include opioid-use disorder, opioid intoxication, and opioid withdrawal. 

The tracks for this year's event include:

  • Medications for Opioid Use

  • Stigma Surrounding Opioid Use Disease

  • Informatics and Opioid Stewardship

  • Health System Delivery of Opioid Use Disease Treatment

Call for Posters — Virtual poster sessions offer the opportunity to present data to a global audience via a PDF poster and video summary, and discuss results with interested colleagues through email. Plan now to have your poster included in the 2021 Opioid Crisis Virtual Event. Submission is free. Submit your abstract here.

Our virtual conference allows you to participate in a global setting with no travel or cost to you. The event will remain open for 2 years from the date of the live event, and the webinars will be available for unlimited on-demand viewing.  This virtual conference also offers increased reach for the global community with a high degree of interaction through live-streaming video and chat sessions.
