Navigating the Next Generation: Awareness and Prevention Seminar

In Pennsylvania, 13 people lose their life each day due to drug-related overdose.

Do you know the issues?  Do you know how to have that conversation with your kids and teens?

This is not a night to ‘fix’ the drug problem in our community, but to understand how drugs shape our culture and affect our families. Join us as we unpack this topic and hear from different speakers from 4 different areas of expertise. Each speaker will present for 10 minutes and the night will end with a Q&A session.

There is childcare Available.
