Speakers

Mark Barnes
Pharmacist & Owner Respect Rx Pharmacies
Mark, along with his partner pharmacists are very passionate advocates for the respectful approach to substance misuse and mental health treatment. This led them to develop Respect Rx, pharmacies that pride themselves on providing dignified, stigma-free pharmacy services to those with complex mental health and addiction issues. Further to this, Mark’s work on the opioid crisis led to the development and implementation of a fentanyl patch return program to help curb diversion of this deadly drug to the streets. This program has received significant local, provincial, and even national attention.
