We at GTCbio invite you to our upcoming meeting The Opioid Crisis and Alternatives on May 8-9, 2018 at the Meyer and Renee Luskin Conference Center on the UCLA campus. This two-day conference will bring together top clinicians, researchers, managed care professionals, and policy makers to address the use of opioids to manage pain in the 21st century. Opioid use has significant benefits in pain management, but who is addressing the inherent risk associated with addiction and other complications?
