AIHP is pleased to share Professor David Herzberg’s lecture, “The Opioid Crisis in Historical Perspective: What we can learn from a century of addiction to pharmaceuticals,” about the historical roots of the current opioid crisis. Herzberg is an Associate Professor of History at the University at Buffalo and a Member of the AIHP Board of Directors. He presented this lecture in conjunction with AIHP’s annual business Meeting Webinar on November 15, 2018.
In the lecture, Herzberg traces the long history of drug addiction and the equally long history of public outcry about the use of certain drugs. He discusses the history of different drug enforcement regimes, and uses these important stories to draw lessons for the contemporary opioid crisis.
