The featured speaker will be Jay Lassiter, writer, political consultant, social justice advocate, and the host/author of the podcast “Heroin Uncut.”
Section president Shari Harrison said Lassiter “will address the conditions that allowed the opioid problem to take hold and the legislative and community-based actions that are needed to address the problem.”
