She volunteers with the Office of Drug Policy in teaching providers and first responders about naloxone for reversal of opioid overdose and serves as one of Health & Welfare's Physician Champions for safe opioid-prescribing.
Dr. Hamso lives in Boise with her husband and infant son. In her free time, she enjoys volunteering at a local homeless shelter, baking cookies, and hiking in the foothills with her dog.
