    SLMMS to Host MSMA Lobbyists: Virtual Legislative Update

    New laws recently became effective in Missouri. This past year's legislative session was driven by COVID-19 which resulted in a number of curve balls thrown at medicine, but the Missouri State Medical Association worked hard to push through legislation that supports physicians in our state, as well as block hostile laws from passing.

    Please join us on Tuesday, September 21, at 6:00 pm, via Zoom as the St. Louis Metropolitan Medical Society (SLMMS) welcomes the MSMA lobbying team for a recap of this year's session and a preview of what's ahead in 2022.

    This event is free and open to all physicians, residents, and medical students. You need not be a member of SLMMS or MSMA to participate.

    Participation in this meeting requires pre-registration in order to receive the Zoom link. Please register before Monday, September 20, 2021.

    Taking Responsibility in Missouri: Reversing the Overdose Epidemic

    Fatal and non-fatal drug overdoses are an ongoing national epidemic. As we confront the evolving nature of the overdose epidemic it has become apparent that prescription opioids are not the only contributor and is not the primary driver of current increases in overdoses. Overdoses involving illicit opioids such as heroin and fentanyl continue to climb. CDC data reports approximately 72,000 overdose deaths nationally in 2019 followed by an increase at the end of 2020 to just over 90,000. We must do better. Stimulants such as cocaine, methamphetamine and some prescription medications can not only be involved but contribute to overdose and overdose deaths.

    Missouri, like all states, is working hard to address the epidemic. This physician toolkit, presented by the Missouri State Medical Association and the American Medical Association provides state and national resources and tools for Missouri physicians to use to help address overdose prevention, substance use and substance use disorder, harm reduction, safe opioid prescribing and management, and provide better care for pain.

    Presenters:

    • Drew Shoemaker MD is board certified in Family and Community Medicine and practices Family and Addiction Medicine at Burrell Behavioral Health in Springfield, MO.
