Description

Please join Dr. Dan L. Hunt, D.O., Corporate Medical Director for workers’ compensation insurance carrier AF Group, as he presents about the major factors responsible for the opioid epidemic in America. What happens to the structure and function of the addicted brain? Can we explain and predict an addict’s behavior?  And finally, is there hope for the future?
 
Dr. Hunt currently works at AF Group’s National Headquarters in Lansing, Michigan. Dr. Hunt practiced as a General Surgeon in Michigan for 28 years prior to joining AF Group in 2014. His current areas of interest are evidence-based medicine; prescription drug monitoring programs; understanding the appropriate roles of opioids, marijuana and alternative treatments for pain in workers compensation; telemedicine; and the impact of wearable monitoring devices on the care of injured workers. 
 
Dr. Hunt has presented on these topics before the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, Department of Labor, National Prescription Drug Abuse Conference, International Association of Industrial Accident Boards and Commissions (IAIABC), National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB), American Insurance Association (AIA) and numerous legislative and university groups.  His most recent papers were published in the Journal of Occupational and Environmental Medicine in May of 2016 regarding the effects of evidence-based medicine on the outcomes of injured workers and May of 2019 regarding The Association of Opioid, Anti-Depressant and Benzodiazepines with Workers’ Compensation Cost.
