“Harvard to offer free online class on the opioid crisis” – STATnews: Morning Rounds

“Harvard is launching a free online course designed to educate people about the opioid epidemic in the US. Instructors will cover the medical basics, such as how opioids are used to treat pain and how pathways in the brain can play a part in addiction. They’ll also touch on the epidemic’s legal aspects — including how law enforcement and public health experts are combatting overdose deaths — and social aspects, such as what the path to recovery might look like, as told by recovering addicts themselves.

“The class gets underway March 27; you can find more info here.”
