Woodlands Rotary Club to host cardiologist to speak about addiction
The Woodlands Rotary Club will present guest speaker Steven Farber Thursday, Sept. 20.
Farber, a cardiologist for more than 25 years, will discuss the topics of his recently released book, "As Sick As Our Secrets." The book was published in March of this year. Farber will speak about his prescription drug addiction, created in the midst of a successful, but highly stressful, medical career. He will discuss how easy it is to be locked into an addiction and the steps to get back out.
"It is important to understand the destructive forces of addiction and its deadly impact on our society," Farber said in a press release. "It is a serious epidemic that affects millions of people every day, and we must tackle it head-on and find solutions."
In regards to prescription drug addiction, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention states that one person dies from these drugs every 19 minutes, a rate four times higher than statistics from a decade ago.
Farber will speak at the Rotary Club of The Woodlands luncheon at noon Thursday, Sept. 20 at The Woodlands Resort and Conference Center located at 2301 N. Millbend Drive. The cost is $20.
