The Opioid Epidemic
:  The explosion in opioid abuse is never far from the national headlines but what is the actual and potential effect on insurers and reinsurers?  Many lines of business are potentially impacted – general liability, products liability, workers’ compensation and medical malpractice to name a few.  The cost to society is huge but how about to our industry?  Mr. Kole is a true expert in this field and will be making a presentation not to be missed!
