The National Prescription Drug Abuse Prevention Policy Consensus Meeting has consistently been among the most substantively focused and effective gatherings nationwide to unite the diverse stakeholders who must work together to reduce prescription drug abuse.
Now in its sixth year, the National Prescription Drug Abuse Prevention Policy Consensus Meeting will summon health care professionals, educators, legislators, law enforcement, insurers, private companies, journalists, academics, and nonprofits to Washington on November 19, 2013, all in search of the best ideas for reducing prescription drug abuse while optimizing patient care.

They will forge relationships with practitioners who can adopt their technologies, insurance companies that can pay for patients to use them, regulators who can foster the conditions for their widespread adoption, and nonprofits that can credibly advocate for all that to happen.

Please bring your ideas to the consensus meeting and support its life-saving ambitions. Become a sponsor.
