Recently declared a “national public health emergency,” opioid-related deaths kill more people in Washington State than automobile accidents or firearms. Local responses range from providing police with tools that counteract overdoses to opening safe injection sites.

Join Enrique Cerna as he moderates an important community conversation examining how King County can work to tackle the growing epidemic of opioid addiction.

Panelists Include:

Rob Johnson, Seattle City Councilmember (District 4)

Brad Finegood, King County Behavioral Health and Recovery Division

Dr. Caleb Banta-Green, UW Department of Health Services

Thea Oliphant-Wells, Social Worker at the Public Health Needle Exchange

Presented in partnership with King County TV.
