Presentation at the National Association of Medical Examiners (NAME) Annual Meeting

 

Edward Reedy, PhD, MD, presented a case report in poster format at the National Association of Medical Examiners (NAME) Annual Meeting October 12 – 16, 2018 in Palm Beach, Florida.  This case report was a collaborative effort between the disciplines of Death Investigation (Pathology) and Toxicology.  The poster was significant because it reported an unusual case of suicidal prescription drug overdose; the level of the most prominent drug detected was at least 10 times higher than previously reported in the literature.  The meeting was a tremendous success, gaining exposure for the Alabama Department of Forensic Sciences (ADFS) on both the national and international levels. Well done Dr. Reedy !!!
