Philanthropic Responses to the Opioid Epidemic in the St. Louis Region
A Topical Program for Grantmakers
Thursday, October 19, 2017
9:00am-10:30am

Opiate addiction and overdose are issues that are wracking communities across our country. In America, overdoses killed more people last year than guns or car accidents, a national trend reflected in the rising number of opioid-related deaths in St. Louis. Families, communities, and even work environments are experiencing the deep-seated challenges of drug addiction. 

How has philanthropy responded? Join the Gateway Center for Giving for a topical program featuring Kate Tansey of the United Way of Greater St. Louis, Dr. Rachel Winograd of the Missouri Institute of Mental Health at UMSL-St. Louis, and Kevin Webb of Mallinckrodt Pharmaceuticals, as they discuss the issue of opioid abuse and opioid-related deaths in the St. Louis region and highlight philanthropic responses to the epidemic.

Participants will leave this program with:
  • Data on the trends, gaps, and progress surrounding the opioid crisis in St. Louis and beyond;
  • Information about local philanthropic and corporate efforts to address the opioid epidemic, including policy and advocacy efforts, community education, partnerships with law enforcement, and eliminating barriers to access addition treatment;
  • Opportunities for funder engagement and support.
WHEN: Thursday, October 19, 2017; 9:00am-10:30am 
WHERE: The HEIGHTS Community Center (8001 Dale Avenue, St. Louis, MO 63117)
