Event description

Description

The Health Affinity Group identified the opioid epidemic as an area of interest. This session aims to increase engagement among funders; learn about the nuances in our state; and understand key strategies for funders to intersect and support the organizations working to address them. Illinois has a robust network of community-based organizations and government partners working together on key strategies to address the multi-sectoral opioid crisis. Funders supporting health, housing, employment, workforce development, mental health, substance use, violence, and equity may find an intersection with their portfolio or area of interest.
