Critical Conversation: “Opioid Addiction”

Institutions of higher education are uniquely positioned to engage in difficult dialogue. Universities are places where individuals should feel safe to discuss complex issues, while feeling heard and respected.

Members of the Case Western Reserve University community are invited to join Provost Ben Vinson III for a Critical Conversations panel discussion exploring opioid addiction Friday, Feb. 24, from 1 to 2 p.m. in Tinkham Veale University Center, Ballroom A. 

The panel will address the topic from multiple perspectives, including the legal, societal, ethical and health implications of the subject. 

The panelists will be:

  • Anita Aminoshariae, professor in the Department of Endodontics and director, of the Predoctoral Endodontics Program at the School of Dental Medicine;
  • Daniel Flannery, the Semi J. and Ruth W. Begun Professor and director of the Begun Center for Violence Prevention Research and Education at the Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel School of Applied Social Sciences; and
  • Andrew Pollis, professor of law and director of the Appellate Litigation Clinic in the Milton and Charlotte Kramer Law Clinic at the School of Law.
