One Pill Can Kill: A Fentanyl Awareness Panel Discussion
April 28, 2022 @ 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm CDT
Drug-overdose deaths are an epidemic in the U.S., touching virtually every state. About 60% of those deaths in the past year are linked to illicitly manufactured or adulterated fentanyl. With the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration seizing nearly 10 million fake pills last year—many were laced with counterfeit fentanyl. Illicit fentanyl is fueling the nation’s drug overdose epidemic and is primarily responsible for the deaths of more than 100,000 people last year alone. Awareness, education, and hard conversations are vital to helping combat this issue. Join us for a panel discussion moderated by local investigative news reporter Arezow Doost Peters, which will include stories of impact from family members, a DEA representative, a mental health expert, a state representative, and a local law enforcement officer.
