A July story reported by WTHR recounts the killing of an Indiana physician over a disagreement about opioids with the husband of one of the physician's patients.  The physician told the patient he would no longer prescribe her opioid medication because her condition was chronic. The husband of the patient became upset, arguing with the doctor before leaving the office.  The husband later returned, confronted the physician, and then proceeded to shoot him, taking his life.
The husband SHOT and KILLED the physician for refusing to write a prescription for pain medication.

How did we get here?  How is it possible this highly addictive medication is leading to the shooting death of physicians, is overwhelming emergency rooms, and is bankrupting communities as they eagerly search for solutions to the crisis?
With the help of a diverse and expert panel on the crisis, we'll explore this question and provide potential solutions.  Join us.
