Cardinal Innovations' Phifer on "Tackling the Opioid Crisis" (part 2)

WBTV — June 20, 2019
In the second of a multi-part series, WBTV’s Jamie Boll sat down with Cardinal Innovations’ Britney Phifer to talk about the opioid crisis - especially its spread in North Carolina.

The conversation starts with the question, “Who is susceptible to addition?” Phifer’s response: “In order to understand that, the best way to think about it is that we all are.”

The segment continues by touching on many other timely and critical topics:
  • Why is opioid use growing so rapidly?
  • What exactly is fentanyl?
  • How can we limit our risk when legitimately prescribed these drugs?
  • What is Narcan, and how can it help?
  • The role everyone has to play in combating this crisis

Watch the full interview with Jamie Boll on WBTV On Your Side (Part 1) or (Part 2).
