High School Students: Submit Opioid Action Videos Before April 28
When used as prescribed by the physician, opioid drugs are very effective in treating moderate to severe pain. However, the misuse of these drugs has led to a spike in opioid addiction that is currently plaguing the nation. One of the ways to address opioid addition crisis is by improving patient awareness. Your video should tell a story that includes the molecular mechanism of opioid action that connects in some way to the current opioid crisis.
High school students can help increase awareness by participating in the 2020 Video Challenge for High School Students on Molecular Mechanisms of Opioid Action.
