IN Ag Industry and Rural Community

Opioid Addiction Symposium

Strong rural communities are a critical component to the success of businesses, small and large, that call the areas outside major metropolitan areas home. What happens when those communities are impacted by a crisis? Unlike weather-related events or even a market dip, this crisis is a preventable problem: Opiate addiction.

Understanding the impact on business economics, community services, law enforcement and the overall health of the county population is a start to community conversations that can lead the way to positive outcomes. Join us in this much needed conversation and learn more about the true impact and the opportunities for action.

Keynote speakers:

Lt. Governor Suzanne Crouch will kick off the day’s program followed by these powerful experts:

Sam Quinones, author, Dreamland , The True Tale of America’s Opiate Epidemic

Jim McClelland,  Executive Director for Drug Prevention, Treatment, and Enforcement, Office of Governor Eric J. Holcomb, State of Indiana

Anne Hazlett, Assistant to the Secretary for Rural Development, USDA
