As part of our community outreach, the Assyrian Family Health Alliance participated in the Opioid Panel Discussion on February 8th, 2019, held at the Assyrian National Council of Illinois.

We were welcomed by the organizers of the event to help distribute informational material to the participants of the discussion regarding safe medication disposal practices, and to help minimize the incorrect use of these medications.

As part of our efforts, we also educated the participants in ways to use these medications in a safe manner, and how to find help using the services some of the panelists highlighted.

Our deepest condolences go out to the households who have suffered losses due to this epidemic, and our hope is to help educate loved ones on how to get the proper care to those who are affected by this issue.

If you know anyone who is in trouble, send us a message on Facebook so we can get you in touch with the right people.
