Addressing Economic Security During the Opioid Crisis: the Health – Wealth Connection
While nearly every community in the US struggles to address the tragic consequences of addiction, the Indiana philanthropic community has paid special attention to addressing the opioid crisis in its communities.
How can funders who do not necessarily identify as health funders invest in solutions to the opioid crisis? How does addiction impact economic security and mobility, and how can Indiana funders of all types become a part of the solution?
Leading researchers, practitioners, and policymakers will discuss the intersection of economic security and addiction in a learning forum for the Indiana philanthropic community.
Join other leaders in Indiana philanthropy to learn from Dr. Annie Harper of the Yale Program for Recovery and Community Health, get a closer understanding of local work from panel of experts, and engage in discussion with one another in topical discussion groups.
This event is open to Funders, Asset Funders Network and Indiana Philanthropy Alliance members, United Ways, rural and community foundations, CRA association members
