I know I read like a broken record- but prescription painkiller misuse and abuse is a huge public health issue not just here- but nationally.  The newest edition of CDC Vital Signs presents information about prescription painkiller overdoses in the United States and highlights promising strategies for addressing the issue. Please share this information broadly with your colleagues and partners and encourage them to take advantage of CDC’s social media tools, such as the RSS feed, Everyday Health Widget, and Vital Signs buttons, to help spread the word. Further, visit the Vital Signs webpage to see a podcast and CDC.gov feature article on this topic.
