Richard Morgan, DO

Clinical Faculty Instructor

NYIT College of Osteopathic Medicine

Richard Morgan is a D.O. who graduated from the New York College of Osteopathic Medicine in 1998 and completed his residency in PM & R at NYU Medical Center in 2002.  A common dental procedure exposed Dr. Morgan to the world of opiates, which changed his life forever.  A series of bad choices and unfortunate circumstances fueled by his addiction led Dr. Morgan to a federal indictment and, ultimately, a 14-year federal prison sentence.  Dr. Morgan's remarkable story will show how this addiction evolved, the choice that led to incarceration, and the turnaround that had led him to become a full-time clinical instructor at his medical school where it all began.  He now spends his time not only educating the future doctors of America, but Dr. Morgan continues to share his story with the student population, as well as clinicians everywhere, in the hope to not only continue to bring awareness to the the "original" pandemic that has plagued our nation for the past twenty years, but to educate other healthcare personnel on how to recognize the signs and symptoms of addiction, and the resources available to help them.
