The House Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Health convened a hearing to examine the nation’s opioid epidemic and ways to combat it. The two-day hearing began with witnesses from the federal government including the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) commissioner and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention acting director. In the second panel, lawmakers heard from addiction advocates. One was the chair and CEO of DisposeRx, a company that pushes for safe disposal of medicine via a powder they created that deactivates drugs.

This was the first day of the subcommittee’s examination of this topic. The program identification number for day two is 442923-1. close
