On January 24th, 2014 Minister of Health Rona Ambrose and the Canadian Centre on Substance Abuse (CCSA) co-hosted a symposium on prescription drug abuse. Their objective: to identify measures to address prescription drug abuse under the National Anti-Drug Strategy.
Dr. Benoit Soucy, Director of Clinical and Scientific Affairs at the Canadian Dental Association (CDA), attended the symposium along with representatives from the healthcare sector, government, First Nations, and law enforcement.
