Understanding Our Opioid Crisis

12/12/2018 - 12/19/2018

On Wednesdays December 12 and 19, Dr. Cindy Ripsin MD will be presenting two workshops titled “Toward a Greater Understanding of Our Opioid Crisis.” She will be discussing the history, nature and scope of this important public health epidemic. This presentation will allow you to become more familiar with the basic language of addiction, dependence, and chronic and acute pain.  The facts pertinent to this crisis will be separated from fictional lore and participants will be invited to discuss their questions, ideas and concerns for managing this crisis through the lens of Unitarian Universalism.

Classes will be held in the church library starting at 7:00pm, following our weekly Wednesday Night dinner and worship service.  Child care could be arranged if requested in advance.
