“Solving the Opioid Abuse Epidemic in Bernalillo County:
Why Aren't We There Yet?”

Thursday, January 8, 2015
CNM Workforce Training Center - 5600 Eagle Rock Ave NE - Albuquerque, NM

On January 8, 2015, at the request of Bernalillo County Commissioner Maggie Hart Stebbins, the Health Council convened the second of a series of summits on opioid abuse in Bernalillo County to take place over the next several years. The meeting was intended to update progress of the Opioid Accountability Initiative since the first summit in September 2013, identifying successes and unrealized opportunities, as well as barriers that have impeded progress. Leaders and stakeholders from the Initiative and the community presented ideas and insights while interacting with audience members to develop solutions and action plans for moving forward.
