4th Annual Life Sciences Forum: 
Spotlight on Today’s Life Sciences, The Opioid Epidemic From Every Angle 

The opioid epidemic is finally getting the attention it merits.  With all of the media at our disposal, though, it took several years for the severity and various layers of this story to come to light. Our program will open with a brief historical overview of epidemics in Philadelphia, their impact on the region, and public response.

Join us on November 14th and hear the insurance, pharmacy, pharmaceutical AND patient advocacy perspectives in this one-of-a-kind gathering of expertise from all sides of the opioid/heroin epidemic.

Our keynote speakers from Adapt Pharma (manufacturers of NARCAN) and Independence Blue Cross will join a panel of experts that includes the founder of Angels Against Addiction and a Pharmacy Director from CVS Caremark.

• Michael Kelly, US President, Adapt Pharma
• Richard L. Snyder, M.D., Senior Vice President and Chief Medical Officer, Independence Blue Cross
