FEATURING KEVIN LYMAN – The opioid crisis in the US continues to grow and claim lives, and Congress and the White House continue their inaction with a lack of real funding initiatives. So organizations and individuals around the nation have started to fill in the gap of government responses.
One such person is my guest Kevin Lyman, who is not in the public health sector, but in the music industry. Spurred by the lack of awareness about what opioids are and how they can cause addiction, Lyman has started an ambitious project to take on this critical issue called Preventum/FEND Initiative.
