Dr. Jeanmarie Perrone is the Director of the Division of Medical Toxicology and Addiction Medicine Initiatives and a Professor of Emergency Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania, as well as a successful published research author.

In this episode, we discuss Dr. Perrone’s role as a national leader in efforts to address the opioid epidemic through her thoughts on stigmas in emergency medicine, equitable access to care through spearheading Penn’s CareConnect “warmline,” the stigma around using lifesaving medications to treat substance use disorder, and Dr. Perrone’s hope for the larger impact of her work.  

Hosted by Heather Major, Executive Director, Independence Blue Cross Foundation.
