    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.
