February’s RTP180 Topic | Opioids
It has been described as a nation-wide epidemic, a crisis, and something we have gone to war over. Opioid related deaths have risen over 800% in North Carolina since 1999. This is an issue many Americans are dealing with, and it is something affecting our backyard. Join us on February 15th to hear from 4 experts from around The Triangle on the research being done surrounding opioids, stigmas attached to the drugs, and strategies to combat this epidemic.
In lieu of Q&A at the end of each speaker’s presentation, we will hold a quick panel with our 4 experts at the end of the program. Have a question you want asked? Email firstname.lastname@example.org
Innovation. Education. Industry. These are powerful angles – and what the Research Triangle Park is known for. At RTP180, speakers from our three founding universities, local companies and the community at-large are called upon to take the stage to speak passionately about what matters to them. Doors open at 5:00pm for networking. Show kicks off at 6:00pm.
This year we will have one event per quarter surrounding the following themes: Science, Human Communications & Interactions, Technology and Economic Development.
