Attendees can learn how to recognize use, what type of help/resources are available and find out about the impact that the heroin/opiates problem is having in Milwaukee and across the region.
“The town hall meeting is the result of a partnership with Milwaukee County, the Medical Society of Milwaukee County, the Milwaukee County Substance Abuse Prevention Coalition, and the City of Milwaukee’s Health Department and Department of Administration,” President Murphy said. “We invite you and your constituents to learn more about the problem here in our city and what we can do to curb this scourge, which is now taking the lives of hundreds each year across the region.”
