Event Details

On the Frontlines of the Opioid Epidemic: A Community Fighting Back 

Wednesday, October 25, 2017 at 1:00 PM (EST)

Communities across the country have been greatly impacted by prescription opioid misuse. In this latest virtual field trip, Operation Prevention will introduce students to the residents of Huntington, West Virginia, one of the communities most affected by the opioid epidemic, to share how opioids have changed their lives. With stories from survivors, community members, and those working tirelessly to make a change, students will be introduced to all facets of a community in recovery during this vital, personal look into the opioid epidemic.

Don't forget to submit your student questions ahead of time for the chance to have them answered live!
