Treating an epidemic: Solutions and challenges in overcoming the opioid crisis

Wisconsin continues to grapple with the opioid epidemic. Emergency departments in the state saw suspected opioid overdoses more than double between July 2016 and last September, according to recent federal data. While Wisconsin has taken steps to fight the crisis, more work remains. A Wisconsin Health News panel will take a closer look at the challenges facing those seeking treatment and how to boost access.

Panelists:

  • Dr. Aleksandra Zgierska, Assistant Professor, UW Department of Family Medicine and Community Health 
  • Andrew Whitacre, Senior Associate, Pew Charitable Trusts
  • Rep. John Nygren, R-Marinette
  • Paul Krupski, Director of Opioid Initiatives, Department of Health Services
