Central Library - The Opioid Crisis-- A Community Discussion

See All Events

6/28/2017 at 7:00 PM to 6/28/2017 at 8:00 PM


With hundreds of drug overdoses happening across the country every week, the opioid epidemic has been deemed a public health emergency! However, as with many social issues, the conversations surrounding this epidemic are complex and involve input from many different perspectives.

The Rochester Public Library and Gates Public Library will host a free panel discussion with representatives from local law enforcement, experts in physiology and psychology, and advocates of the addiction community. Each panelist will share the challenges they face within their field, what they're doing to address these challenges, and what changes they'd like to see happening in our communities.

This program will be held in the Kate Gleason Auditorium located on the first floor of Central’s Bausch and Lomb Public Library Building, 115 South Ave., Rochester, NY. Registration is encouraged, but not required. Please call (585) 428-8397, or click here to register.
