Webinar on synthetic drugs

Synthetic drugs: What you need to know

Synthetic drugs go by a notorious array of trendy names including flakka, spice and ivory wave. Although their names differ, their dangers remain the same. Drug users experience unpredictable and sometimes severe physical effects; and as a result, emergency room visits have spiked across the country. Synthetic drug manufacturers continue to modify the chemical compositions of these substances to evade detection and stay ahead of the law. Yet, laboratories and researchers persist and continuously work to identify these harmful, ever-changing compounds.

Our webinar features Dr. Kimberly Samano, Postdoctoral Fellow at Quest Diagnostics. Dr. Samano provides an overview of pharmacological profiles and physiological effects of synthetic drugs, review trends in usage and patterns and discuss the unique challenges that synthetic drugs create for a workplace drug testing program.
