Health And Education Committee To Receive An Update On Opioid Crisis

Members of the Metro Council’s Health and Education Committee will receive an update on how well Louisville Metro is handling the opioid crisis at its next regular meeting on Wednesday, February 27th.

“I want to make sure we stay updated on how Metro Government is handling this situation in all areas, especially with treatment facilities and programs of recovery,” says Councilwoman Keisha Dorsey (D-3), who chairs the Committee. “Several of these programs could be impacted given the potential budget problems we are now reviewing.”

On Wednesday, Dr. Sarah Moyer, MD, Director, Chief Health Strategist of the Louisville Metro Department of Public Health & Wellness, Virginia Schrooten, LPCC-S, Director of Women’s Addiction Services, Centerstone and Heather N. Gibson, LCSW, Vice President of Program Services with The Healing Place will discuss the State of the Opioid Crisis with Committee members.

The Health and Education Committee will meet at 2:30pm in Council Chambers, Historic City Hall, 601 West Jefferson Street.

The meeting is carried live on Metro TV, Spectrum Cable Channel 184 or on UVERSE at Channel 99.
