NOVEMBER 10, 2021
The 5th Annual Kansas Opioid and Stimulant Conference will be held virtually on November 10th 2021.
Join us on November 10th to learn more about the opioid and stimulant crisis in Kansas. Engaging together in this proactive effort to build a collaborative response will help to prevent the escalation of this crisis in Kansas.
