Please join us Monday, Feb. 6, in Clifton Forge for the first 2023 event in the Cardinal News Speaker Series. We will be hosting an important discussion about the impact opioids have had on the workforce and role employers can play in recovery.
“Raising Lazarus” and “Dopesick” author Beth Macy will open the discussion and be joined on the panel by Ann Gardner, Alleghany County commonwealth’s attorney and drug court advocate; Ingrid Barber, executive director of the Alleghany Highlands Community Services Board; and Lee Higginbotham, CEO of Lewis Gale Alleghany Hospital.
The event will be held, starting at 7 p.m., in the Clifton Forge Historic Masonic Theatre, and is made possible with the support of the Town of Clifton Forge.
While the event is being held in Alleghany County, the impact of opioids on the workforce is felt throughout communities in Southwest and Southside Virginia. The program will allow for plenty of time for the panelists to take audience questions.
The Speaker Series is free to attend but advanced registration is required.
