Beth Macy takes us into the epicenter of America’s struggle with opioid addiction. From distressed small communities in Central Appalachia to wealthy suburbs; from disparate cities to once-idyllic farm towns; it’s a heartbreaking trajectory that connects the human lives deeply impacted by addiction and wider economic and political forces that shape today's opioid crisis. The Keynote on Combating Addiction will take place March 21 @ 8:30 am Worsham Cinema, Gatton Student Center. The presentation will be followed by a networking session and book signing. This is part of the Fulbright Visiting Scholar Enrichment Seminar: Combating Addiction sponsored by the UK International Center and the Offices of the President & Provost.
