National Issues Forum: What Should We Do About the Opioid Epidemic?

October 17, 2018 @ 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM

Drug abuse, a problem the United States has faced for decades, has taken a sharp and lethal turn with the rise of opioids—both legal painkillers, such as oxycodone and fentanyl, and illegal ones like heroin. What should we do to relieve the opioid epidemic facing our communities?

This forum will discuss this national issue and various courses of action that can be taken to alleviate the problem. All participants must remain respectful and courteous of others’ opinions and ideas. The discussion will be led by trained professional Tracy Rogers-Tryba.

The forum is entirely free and required no registration to attend. Below are materials and literature about this issue that will be used during the forum. You do not need to read these materials prior to the event, but are welcome to do so if it is helpful.
