Statewide Faith-Based Opioid Summit

Stronger Together: Building Capacity to Address the Opioid Epidemic in Faith Communities

Please join us for a statewide faith-based opioid summit on June 20, 2019 from 9:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the Drury Plaza Hotel in Franklin, TN. We want to hear from you on how this public health crisis is impacting your congregations and community. Our aim is engage faith leaders to increase engagement in opioid response in their communities and raise awareness among minorities and underserved populations. Participants will receive an overview of state level data on opioid deaths and substance abuse overdoses.

Multiple speakers will share local and regional impact and resources to support prevention, treatment and recovery response. Personal stories of addiction and faith will be shared from community advocates. This conversation will provide an opportunity to learn how to help each other and how faith-based leadership can respond to opioid addiction in your community.

Please register to attend. Lunch will be provided.
