Next week on Tuesday, May 7, there is an opportunity to join an informative and motivational event for the community; A Community Connected: Addressing the Opioid Crisis Together from 5-8 p.m. at Riverside Place Auditorium in Spokane. The event will also include a panel of local experts with an opportunity for Q & A from the audience.
This is a free event for the community. The registration is available online.
Tony Hoffman, Olympian coach, world-ranked pro BMX racer, and former addict is the keynote speaker for the event. Tony has inspired audiences across the county through his motivational speeches. His story is one of addiction, recovery, and hope.
“I’m looking forward to coming to Spokane and sharing my story about how one choice can change the rest of your life.”
Understanding opioid disorder can help bring about change. Some items to note:
The event is intended for community members wanting to learn more about the disease and to become a part of the solution; teachers, students, neighborhood leaders and activists, families of those struggling with addiction, individuals struggling with addiction, health care providers, social service providers, elected officials, churches, anyone wanting to learn more and to be a part of the solution.
