Join us Friday, October 26 for our second to last Inside Pardee of the 2018 calendar year. October’s Inside Pardee will feature Dr. David Ellis, Chief Medical Officer at Pardee Hospital, speaking about Opioids, Past, Present and Future. Dr. Ellis is also a board-certified obstetrician and gynecologist at Pardee Center for Gynecology. He has been a member of the Pardee team for over 30 years. Although Dr. Ellis specializes in women’s well being and health, his Inside Pardee talk will focus on the opioid epidemic sweeping through America.

Dr. Ellis’s interest on this particular topic sparked when he read Sam Quinones’ Dreamland: The True Tale of America’s Opiate Epidemic. Since reading this nonfiction, Dr. Ellis has partnered with HopeRx in an effort to raise awareness about the opioid crisis both locally and regionally. He has interviewed with news stations, taken part in panels and delivered speeches on the topic of opioid abuse. We are excited to hear from Dr. Ellis himself on October 26 at noon. RSVP to Nancy Christy at the Pardee Foundation to secure your spot.
