The Hill Publishes Aimed Alliance Coalition Member’s Op-Ed on National Rx Drug Abuse Summit


On April 9, 2015, The Hill published Glimmer of Hope in Reducing Prescription Drug Abuse, written by Michael Barnes, an Aimed Alliance coalition member. The op-ed highlights the positive work of the National Rx Drug Abuse Summit, which is taking place this week in Atlanta, GA and discusses how a comprehensive national effort to reduce prescription drug fraud, diversion, misuse and abuse is needed now more than ever, without sacrificing consumer access to high-quality health care. It calls for increased prescriber education so they can better fulfill their roles as gatekeepers in the drug supply chain. It also notes that the human suffering on all sides of prescription drug abuse is what inspires our compassion and determination to combat it. To read the op-ed in full, see here.
