Healthy Tennessee, a non-profit organization committed to ensure Tennessee becomes first in the South for a healthier state, announces it will be hosting "Working Together to Find Solutions to the Opioid Crisis," a first of its kind summit in Tennessee that brings together stakeholders from across our state to find solutions to end the opioid crisis.

In a statement announcing the summit, Dr. Manny Sethi, founder of Healthy Tennessee said "I have traveled to every corner of Tennessee, and the opioid crisis has touched every community in our state. I am heartened to find dedicated individuals, organizations, and companies who are committed to end the opioid crisis, but far too many of them were in silos and not working together. I am thankful that all major candidates for Governor and the United States Senate will be speaking as we hope the summit will be a collaborative and interactive event to work together, develop best practices, and to help ultimately end the opioid crisis in Tennessee."

DATE: Friday August 24, 2018
TIME: 8:30 am - 2:30 pm
LOCATION: Hermitage Hotel, 231 6th Avenue North, Nashville, TN 37219
