CVS Health and POLITICO Examine the Opioid Crisis

11.14.17

“Politico Explains: Opioids,” a three-part, animated video series presented by CVS Health, provides a quick and easy-to-understand explanation of one of the most pressing challenges in public health: the opioid epidemic. Narrated by Politico health care reporter Sarah Karlin-Smith, and illustrated by Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist Matt Wuerker, it explains the history of opioid addiction in the U.S., what’s being done to solve it, and how to help those who are already addicted.
