The Saving Lives Task Force in partnership with Eastern AHEC, Brody School of Medicine, and the Governor's Institute hosted a provider educational event on March 12, 2019 at Pamlico Jacks. Dr. Michael Lang was the keynote speaker at the “Opiate Prescribing Challenges & Alternatives for Chronic Pain Management” event and a local panel of five providers shared evidence-based alternatives in pain management. A total of 65 providers were in attendance, and each was given copies of “Living Well with Pain” a pain management resource guide for Dare County residents.
