On February 27th, we launched our Opioid Awareness Event Series at the Finkelstein Memorial Library. We sat down with Dr. Chinazo Cunningham, a family doctor and addiction treatment provider at Montefiore Medical Center. She answered questions such as: What opioid addiction looks like? Why are we seeing an over prescription of opioid painkillers? What happens to the body when someone overdoses? and How can you support a loved one who is living with addiction?
Here is a short clip from the night:
We were delighted to have County Legislator Aney Paul join us, as well. Below are pictures from the event. Below are more photos from the event.
