First opioid summit

On October 15, the first-ever Opioid Summit was held. Over 400 people attended, including U.S. Congressional Representative Debbie Dingell and half a dozen Washtenaw County Commissioners. At the summit, over four dozen Naloxone treatment kits were given to attendees who needed them—along with instructions on how to use them. Dozens of attendees signed up for subcommittees that would work to address the top five issues driving opioid misuse in our community.
