Opioid Roundtable: What’s Working? What’s Not? And What’s Next?

Description: Fighting the opioid epidemic is a major priority for all Maryland counties and for the nation itself.

All conference participants are invited to attend this session to discuss what’s working, what’s not, and how counties can learn from each to help Marylanders fight substance use challenges.
