2020 Rx Drug Abuse & Heroin Summit

“The same power, the same drive that prompted you to be a part of the solution – to beat back the opioid epidemic, to save lives, and bring illegal drug dealers to justice – it’s that same victorious spirit that will carry this nation through the coronavirus pandemic.”
– Congressman Hal Rogers (KY-5th)

The 2020 Rx Drug Abuse & Heroin Summit took place as a virtual experience April 14-16, 2020 because of the travel and social gathering restrictions resulting from the COVID-19 global pandemic.

With 12 different educational tracks and over 150 national expert speakers, the Virtual Experience provided participants the same caliber of content you’ve come to expect from the Rx Summit. There were 50 exhibitors showcased in the Virtual Exhibit Hall.

A reminder: Participants have up to one year to view sessions and to claim Continuing Education credits.

“By helping each other gain knowledge about emerging threats and best practices, you are creating hope where you are,” Hale said. “Community by community, we will win this battle because we are stronger together.”
