“Pacira is excited to be a part of the first-ever #BlogHer18 Health event and will host a panel featuring three leading surgeons titled, ‘The Operating Room: A Gateway to the Opioid Epidemic,’” said Amber Sears, Vice President of Corporate Communications at Pacira Pharmaceuticals. “Women have a powerful voice in this growing opioid crisis and, as the chief medical officer of the home, it’s critical that they are aware of effective non-opioid options to manage pain following surgery for themselves and their family.”
