Community Summit on Heroin and Opioid Crisis

The event featured important commentary from keynote speakers FBI Director James Comey and DEA Acting Administrator Chuck Rosenberg as well as a screening of the film "Chasing The Dragon". This film was produced by the FBI and highlights the risks and dangers of both opioid use and addiction. The summit concluded with an informative panel discussion on this issue.
