New London issues survey to examine local response to opioid crisis
New London Mayor Michael Passero, the city’s Director of Human Services Jeanne Milstein, attorney Ashleigh Backman of the Connecticut Veterans Legal Center and the Municipalities Working Group, in advance of a June summit, have issued a survey examining Connecticut’s local response to the opioid crisis.
The survey is a convenient way for local leaders to share ideas, promote successful initiatives and discuss municipal challenges in addressing the opioid problem. The anonymous survey results will be presented at the Building Bridges and Finding Answers: Opioid Crisis in Connecticut Summit on June 7.
The summit will bring together leaders from the Connecticut legislature, the Judicial Branch, public health officials, private foundations, and local stakeholders will use survey information to enhance statewide coordination, communication, and policy recommendations to ensure individuals and families living with opioid use disorder have the care and support they need.
The summit will be hosted by Quinnipiac University, including the Schools of Law, Medicine, Nursing, Education and Health Sciences, in association with the Opioid Task Force of the Connecticut Bar Association and the Connecticut Bar Foundation James W. Cooper Fellows.
The survey can be found at bit.ly/CTopioidsurvey.
