Opioid Crisis: Dispelling Misconceptions and Spotlighting the Overlooked, November 30

James Choo, medical director of the surgery center at Pain Consultants of East Tennessee, will present “Opioid Crisis: Dispelling Misconceptions and Spotlighting the Overlooked” at the UT Science Forum Friday, November 30.

The current focus on the opioid crisis has placed necessary attention on the nation’s addiction problems. The opioid crisis has overshadowed those caught in between multi-stakeholder efforts to curb opioid abuse. In his talk, Choo exposes misinformation about the opioid crisis and calls attention to people who are overlooked.

The UT Science Forum takes place Friday, November 30 from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. in the Thompson-Boling Arena Cafe (located at 1600 Phillip Fulmer Way), Room A.

Guests are encouraged to bring their lunch or purchase it from the arena. Each presentation is followed by a Q&A. The event is free and open to the public.

We have temporary parking passes available for our guests who do not have UT parking passes. An RSVP is required for the pass. To request a pass, please email Amanda Womac. If you would like to receive a permit by US mail in advance of the meeting, please send an email before 10 a.m. Tuesday, November 27 and include your mailing address.
