The Doctors Corner
Dr. Josh Bloom
Dr. Josh Bloom, the Director of Chemical and Pharmaceutical Science for the American Council on Science and Health, is a recognized expert on the opioid crisis and was the first journalist to write a nationally published opinion piece about the unintended consequences of a governmental crackdown on prescriptions opioids (New York Post, 2013). Since that time he has published more than a dozen op-eds in regional and national newspapers on different aspects of the crisis. In that same year, he testified at an FDA hearing and was the only speaker to note that fentanyl was the real killer, something that would be proven years later.
