The Chicago Wake-Up Call Forum
A stunning 70 percent of employers reported that their businesses had been affected by prescription drug abuse, including absenteeism, positive drug tests, injuries, accidents and overdoses, according to a 2017 survey by the National Safety Council, a research and advocacy organization.
The Wake Up Call forum will shine a spotlight on the root causes of the crisis, and more importantly, show what roles each of us can play to solve the largest public health crisis in 100 years.
At the Chicago Wake Up Call Forum, nationally renowned health care entrepreneur, strategist and best-selling author, Dave Chase joins Chicago-area employers, health care experts, public officials and prominent business and civic leaders to shine a spotlight on the root causes of the crisis, and more importantly, shows what roles each of us can play to solve the largest public health crisis in 100 years.
Employers, civic leaders and others will learn how they can effectively stop the opioid crisis in its track and restore health, hope and well-being in our homes, businesses and communities.
Fixes to our health care system will ripple through generations to come.
