Those in attendance discussed and shared their thoughts on prescription drug misuse and prevention methods. Throughout the two days, members and leaders had the opportunity to interact with others in the coalition, attend multiple breakout sessions, and listen to keynote speakers; one of which was Kevin Hines.
