Play • 50 min

Dr Nabarun Dasgupta studies drugs and infectious diseases in the Opioid Data Lab at the University of North Carolina's Injury Prevention Research Center. In the last several years, he's published groundbreaking epidemiological analyses that explode the myth that prescribed narcotics are driving the "opioid crisis." Dr Dasgupta says his passion is "to tell true stories about health with numbers" drawn from field research, large database analytics, lab investigations, randomized trials, and community-based interventions. Learn the facts about the causes of drug overdoses from an authentic expert who's passionate about the truth—and compassionate for all of us still devastated by a decade of bad drug policy.
