CDC works 24/7 to save lives and protect Americans. In this Director's Briefing video, CDC Director Dr. Tom Frieden talks about the latest Vital Signs report on prescription drug overdose (www.cdc.gov/vitalsigns/). Prescription pain killer deaths have skyrocketed in women. In 2010, more than 6,600 women died from prescription pain killers, four times as many as those who died from cocaine and heroin combined. Health care providers, policy makers, and communities can work together so patients who need prescription medicines can get them safely and use them appropriately.
