A new episode of “For the Medical Record” will be published February 28!
Join us in our conversation with Caleb Alexander, MD, MS, and Jason Chernesky, PhD, about the Opioid Industry Documents Archive. Both based at Johns Hopkins University, Dr. Alexander is a practicing internist and epidemiologist, and Dr. Chernesky is a historian of medicine and the Council on Library and Information Resources (CLIR) Opioid Industry Research Postdoctoral Fellow. Taking the OIDA’s collection of documents as the starting point, we discuss commercial determinants of health, geographies of empathy across American drug epidemics, what litigation documents can tell us about public health, and writing the “second draft” of the story of the opioid epidemic.
