Legacy aids congress at the 2018 National Opioid Summit in Washington D.C.

Legacy's Co-Founder, Derek Daley, has taken an active stance to mitigate against the deleterious impacts associated with opiate use in the United States. On May 14th, 2018 Derek worked with policymakers and mental health professional in Washington D.C, collaborating on an effective systematic change to halt this deadly outbreak. The proposed changes involve e-prescribing for controlled substances and a national prescription drug monitoring program (PDMP). Derek is both passionate and motivated to stop this epidemic, continuing to work with professionals and policymakers to formulate a new congressional bill.
