PAST EVENT

The Health Subcommittee, chaired by Rep. Michael C. Burgess, M.D. (R-TX), holds a roundtable discussion, hearing personal stories from the opioid crisis. 

Participants provide a first-hand look at many issues within the opioid crisis, including the rise of fentanyl and other synthetic drugs, and patient brokering. Both issues have been the subject of hearings and investigations by  #SubOversight.
