COMMUNITY CONNECTIONS
AUGUST 27 | 6 PM

Join us for the first event in our series where we will hear from
Tony LaGreca about the impact of opiates in America.

PART 1: A DISCUSSION ABOUT THE OPIOID EPIDEMIC IN AMERICA

Tony lost his son, Matthew in 2014, due to an addiction to
opiates which started with a prescription for a college
football injury. Tony is now an activist for FED UP, a
national organization that monitors the makers of opioids.
Additionally he works as a bereavement facilitator for
parents who have lost a child from substance use disorder.
He also is a partner with Wahl Street Productions and has
produced films on addiction with Jim Wahlberg.
