Salt Lake City Opioid Town Hall Invitation - April 30 @ 4pm

Have you, your family, business or community been affected by the Opioid Epidemic? 

Have you wanted to understand more about what you can do and have your voice heard? 

We would like to invite you to attend an Opioid Town Hall on April 30. 

What: This is an opportunity to share your ideas and concerns as to how the opioid epidemic is affecting your community. This meeting will focus on the needs of Salt Lake City and its unique challenges in relation to the opioid crisis.

(For those that are unable to attend the Salt Lake City Opioid Town Hall, we will be hosting similar events in other areas around the county and state in upcoming months, so please stay tuned.) 

When: Tuesday, April 30, 2019, 4-6pm (light refreshments served)

Where: Salt Lake City Library, Marmalade Branch 280 West 500 North, Salt Lake City in the Multi-Purpose Room

Who should attend: Business owners, law enforcement, EMS, community council members, neighborhood groups, faith leaders, community-based organizations, and other community leaders and decision makers

Pre-Survey: In order to better guide the Opioid Town Hall discussion and focus in on the issues you are facing, we would like you to complete this very short, completely anonymous survey. It will only take an estimated 2-5 minutes to complete. 

Please also forward this invitation to other Salt Lake City leaders and/or residents you think may be interested in attending or providing feedback.
