Memorial Medical Center and Essentia to host webinar with author and executive producer of 'Dopesick'

Memorial Medical Center (MMC) and Essentia Health are hosting a free webinar featuring Beth Macy – the author of the critically-acclaimed book “Dopesick: Dealers, Doctors, and the Drug Company That Addicted America”, which has recently been adapted into a Hulu series, “Dopesick”.

The book unpacks the most intractable social problems of our times: the opioid crisis, set against a landscape of job loss, corporate greed, and stigma, along with the families and first responders who are heroically fighting back.

She will give a 30-minute presentation at 5:30pm on Tuesday, December 14.

The event is funded through a grant from the US Department of Health and Human Service’s Health Resources and Services Administration agency. Views of Macy’s will not necessarily represent the views of the U.S. government.
