NSC 2018: Senator Ted Cruz Talks About Opioids

Opioid memorial unveiled at the 2018 National Safety Congress in Houston.

Houston marks the sixth stop on the nationwide tour of the National Safety Council's memorial to opioid victims.

The exhibit, which is titled Prescribed to Death, provides facts and real stories about those impacted by the substance abuse epidemic.

"Education plays a critical role in eliminating these preventable deaths," said Deborah Hersman, NSC president and CEO. "We hope the Stop Everyday Killers campaign helps personalize this tragedy."

Texas Senator Ted Cruz also was in attendance at the 2018 National Safety Congress to unveil the exhibit.

Watch him speak to attendees about how the Cruz family has been affected by the opioid crisis.
