Neuroscience Discovery & Alternatives to Opioids

Join us November 14 in the Greater Cincinnati area

Opioid abuse is among the deadliest population health crises in America, with more than 14 opioid-related overdose deaths each day in Ohio. Thanks to the determination of dedicated individuals, real change is happening, lives are transforming, and diverse community partners and caring professionals are making a difference.

This conference will highlight Ohio technologies that are addressing this crisis. In addition to amazing speakers and stakeholders addressing the current state of Ohio’s epidemic, this event will host companies with a product or service addressing this crisis. Join us and be part of the solution.

This regional event is held in partnership with BioOhio’s fellow statewide bioscience organizations, Indiana Health Industry Forum and the Kentucky Life Sciences Council. IHIF and KLSC members can register using the BioOhio member rate.
