"What an EXCELLENT presentation!! Dr. Norris sought to recalibrate the audience's mindset from the very beginning. I love the phrase "Medications are poisons with beneficial side effects." as well & can be a double-edged sword to counter mistruths or bring clarity to what *therapeutic substances" really are. "
