Ohio Opioid Solution Summit

Ohio Chamber of Commerce, 34 South Third Street, Columbus, Ohio 43215

The Montrose Group will host the Ohio Opioid Solutions Summit on August 28, 2018 from 8:30am to Noon.  A recent Cleveland Federal Reserve Bank report found that drug overdoses are now the leading cause of death for Americans under 50 and Ohio, unfortunately ranks 2nd in the U.S. in opioid overdose deaths.  The opioid crisis is a major social and economic challenge for Ohio.  The Montrose Group, LLC, a Columbus based economic development and public policy consulting firm, is coordinating that Ohio Opioid Solution Summit to discuss the scope of the problem, how communities and companies are dealing with it and what the government can do to address the issue. Register for this free event by emailing Lauren Bell, at lbell@montrosegroupllc.com.
