The 6th Annual reimagine Health Research Symposium on Opioids: How the science of pain management and addiction can impact abuse concerns the approximate 50 million people in the U.S. that live with chronic pain, as well as the 140 people that die each day in the U.S. from opioid overdoses. In Arizona alone there are more than 1,900 deaths from opioid overdoses each year, and the numbers are increasing by nearly 10% per year. The main objective of the 6th Annual reimagine Health Research Symposium is to learn the most recent scientific and medical advances that have been made in our understanding of pain, how we can better manage it in those who suffer from chronic pain, as well as how discoveries of the molecular mechanisms of addiction can inform us on how to treat opioid abuse and, hopefully, deaths from opioid overdose.
The Jan. 26, 2024, symposium will be hosted as a hybrid event both on our campus in downtown Phoenix, Arizona, and virtually via our event platform, Whova. The event is open to the public. We highly recommend researchers and health care professionals to attend. We also welcome students, educators and the general public to attend this valuable symposium. Thanks to our generous sponsors, the Arizona Biomedical Research Centre and the Flinn Foundation, there is no cost to attend the symposium.
