Lunch & Learn: Community Response to the Opioid Crisis

NYC Veterans Alliance invites community members, veterans, family members, caregivers, and service providers to join us for an informative "Lunch & Learn" conversation on NYC's Opioid Crisis. This conversation will raise awareness on addiction and discuss what veterans and community members as civic leaders can do to make a difference on a local level.

Join us for a conversation with local leaders and experts on addiction and related policy. Topics and areas that will be covered include:

  • Addiction awareness, trends, and prevention

  • Impact of addiction on our community's homeless populations

  • Addiction policy and current steps being taken to address the epidemic

  • Steps each of us can take within our community and how to encourage others to get involved

  • A Narcan (Naloxone) training provided by GMHC including a Narcan certification and Narcan kit for each participant
