Opioid Crisis 2020

LabRoots is pleased to announce the 1st Annual Opioid Crisis Virtual Event taking place on November 5th, 2020. 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 disorders are associated with overuse, misuse, and dependence on these drugs, and they include opioid-use disorder, opioid intoxication, and opioid withdrawal. 

This years event will include the following tracks:

  • Medications for Opioid Use Disorder  
  • Stigma Surrounding Opioid Use Disorder
  • Informatics and Opioid Stewardship
  • Health System Delivery of Opioid Use Disorder Treatment

Our virtual conference allows you to participate in a global setting with no travel or cost to you. The event will remain open 6 months from the date of the live event.  The webinars will be available for unlimited on-demand viewing.  This virtual conference also offers increased reach for the global microbiology community with a high degree of interaction through live-streaming video and chat sessions.

This event will be produced on our robust platform, allowing you to watch, learn and connect seamlessly across all desktop or mobile devices. Equipped with gamification and point system, you can now move around the entire event, earning points for a chance to win one of LabRoots' most popular T-shirts.



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 2020 Opioid Crisis Virtual Event. Submission is free. Submit your abstract here.
