Episode 24 of ColinTalk takes an in-depth look at the opioid epidemic in America, what initiatives we can take as a community, what work is going on, how anybody can help, and what President Trump is doing about it. (Hint: He’s not doing much of anything.) Our outstanding panel for this episode features Dr. Jim Shames, The Medical Director at Jackson County Public Health, and Laura Heesacker, The Behavioral Health Innovation Specialist for Jackson Care Connect who was recently honored as an outstanding ambassador through Lines of Life, an organization dedicated to preventing substance abuse and suicide. We discuss some fantastic work going on in the Jackson County region of Oregon where their collaborative efforts are really making a difference on the serious opioid issues in and around our communities… and even worldwide.
