Fighting the opioid crisis is one of my top priorities. My eyes picked up when I spotted this workshop, so, while it’s an hour away from Salem, it might be worth the trip. Anyone want to carpool?

The Opioid Crisis:

How did it happen, how do we deal with it,
and how it affects everyone in NH.
By David Coursin, MD

On Thursday September 6, from 7 pm – 8:30 pm, at the Northwood Community Center at 135 Main St, I’ll be presenting information about the opioid epidemic. I have treated addicted patients in the hospital and in the community throughout my career. As a member of the investigative committee for the NH Board of Medicine, I’ve dealt first hand with the fall-out from inappropriate health care and with the impact of prescribing rules. I’ve closely followed how this crisis developed and the regulatory and legal factors that allowed it to escalate.

I understand what effective treatment looks like, and I know there is hope for suffering individuals and frightened families when that treatment is available. I’ll draw on all of this in a 30-minute talk intended to generate questions and discussion. The talk is open to anyone interested in learning more about the topic and in creating a civil dialogue about it.

This is the first in a series of discussion nights, each centered on a specific topic. They are scheduled monthly, on the 1st and 3rd Thursdays nights from 7 pm – 8:30 pm at the Community Center. Email me at electdavidcoursin@gmail.com if you want to be notified about coming events. Look for public announcements otherwise.

Join me and we’ll make it interesting.
