Hear from those on the front lines of fighting the opioid epidemic in Williamson County
On September 11, FrankTalks will cover a topic that has started to hit our community too close to home. We have all seen it in the headlines and heard it on the news. While we would all rather believe that the opioid crisis will not affect us, it is a very real situation that is consistently growing in severity.
FrankTalks is partnering with the Williamson County Anti-Drug Coalition (WCADC) in an effort to further educate the public and discuss ways our community can fight this epidemic. The panel will consist of individuals who have personally been affected by the opioid crisis and those who work as professionals in law enforcement or treatment and recovery.
FrankTalks is free and the public is invited. Franklin Tomorrow partnered with Vanderbilt University’s Office of Neighborhood, Government and Community Relations to expand the frequency of FrankTalks in 2016 to a monthly program. It is held at various locations across the city, but always on the second Monday of the month. FrankTalks will begin at 9 a.m. in the City Hall Training Room on the Church Street end of the building. The program will begin at 9:30 a.m.
