Montana Medical Association Announces the “Know Your Dose” Prescription Drug Abuse Reduction Website in Statewide Launch
In early 2013, the MMA began discussions on the public health crisis of opioid abuse and determined the topic demanded the creation of a physician work group with expertise in this area to develop a one-stop online resource center for health care providers, chronic pain patients and the general public. After 18 months of strategic planning and development, MMA announced the launch of its new “Know Your Dose” website. The launch included a four city press tour of Billings, Helena, Missoula and Kalispell.
Nominations for the Doctor Jack McMahon Service Award and Award of Merit are being accepted by the MMA Executive Committee until August 5.
