The abuse of heroin and other opioids is a deadly epidemic in Pennsylvania. The 2016 Matthew J. Ryan Law and Public Policy Forum, Understanding the Opioid Epidemic, explores the medical, legal, policy and sociological dimensions of this issue. This conference brings together leading experts—including Pennsylvania Secretary of Corrections John E. Wetzel and Pennsylvania Physician General Dr. Rachel Levine—and features an excerpted screening of NBC 10’s documentary “Generation Addicted” with commentary by the documentarians.
The event takes place on Friday, Sept. 16 from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. in the Laurence E. Hirsch ’71 Classroom (Rm 101) at the Law School and is open to the Villanova Community and the public. This program is approved by the Pennsylvania Continuing Legal Education Board for 6 substantive credits.
