WHAT: The sixth annual Clinton Foundation Health Matters Activation Summit will focus on creating health equity in the twenty-first century by exploring both national efforts and community-led solutions. Dr. Kim D. Janda, Ph.D., from The Scripps Research Institute will join former president Bill Clinton and other leading health experts in a discussion about the opioid epidemic: Catalyzing Solutions to the Opioid Epidemic: Affirming Innovations that Address the Growing Addiction Treatment Gap.

WHEN: Monday, April 10, 2017, from 11:25 am – 12 pm CST

WHO: Dr. Janda has developed a potential vaccine to prevent the “high” of opioids, including fentanyl, from reaching the brain.

WHERE: Clinton Presidential Center in Little Rock, Arkansas.
