Important Information about The People’s Opioid Summit
The People’s Opioid Summit – A real-time gathering of the people, by the people, and for the people addicted to opioids and their loved ones.
Below, we hope you’ll find important logistical information about the summit. If you have any questions, please contact us.
The People’s Opioid Summit will take place on Friday, October 9, 2020, from 8 am to 6 pm online. As a virtual event, participation is essentially unlimited.
Attendees will be able to participate remotely, by logging in to view workshops, panels, breakout sessions, and keynote speakers throughout the day, or after the event. Participants will also have access to resource materials distributed at the summit, as well as to extensive additional information from this website.
The overarching vision of the People’s Opioid Summit is to more than a 1-day activity. We envision the People’s Opioid Summit as a meaningful resource that will make a significant difference in the lives of the people for an extended period of time.
This Event is for YOU. The program on October 9th starts with registration and an opportunity to virtually meet other attendees. The event will formally begin at 8.00 AM with introductory remarks and instructions about the day’s workshops, presentations, and vendors. Throughout the day attendees will be a part of workshops, panel discussions, breakouts, and keynote addresses.
Our primary keynote speaker is Mr. Steve Mange, Senior Policy & Strategy Council Director at the North Carolina Department of Justice. Mr. Mange is widely regarded as one of North Carolina’s leading experts on the Opioid crisis and its implications on North Carolina residents. Representatives from the Carolina Hurricanes hockey team, prominent researchers, and other notable guests are also scheduled to participate.
While we are in the midst of a pandemic, we cannot ignore the needs of other public health crises. The leadership group behind The People’s Opioid Summit had considered postponing our event in order to have it in-person, but with the numbers of opioid-related deaths rising even more dramatically, we felt that we could not wait.
As a result, we are working diligently to transition our event to one that can be participated in virtually and will still provide all of the information, support, and resources we had envisioned having at our on-site event. Vendors, Sponsors, and Attendees will still find this to be an incredibly valuable event. If you have any questions about the capabilities and processes of this revised event, please contact us.
