Dr. Chuck Hofmann from Eastern Oregon Coordinated Care Organization, joins the Morning Buzz to encourage attendance of upcoming forums focusing on drug abuse. Specifically focusing on prescription opioids, the harm to communities across Oregon and the rest of the country continues to grow, and the forum will discuss what alternatives are available along with solutions to curbing this over-use of this dangerous medication.

Everyone is invited to the public forum on April 27th, at the Blue Mountain Conference Center in La Grande, beginning at 6:30PM. More details about the upcoming community forum, as well as the provider forum the following day, can be found on the Eastern Oregon Coordinated Care Organization website.
