For staff and trustees of grantmaking organizations


Connecticut’s opioid epidemic is a complex, heartbreaking public health crisis that is ravaging families and damaging our communities. While it often seems hopeless, there are successful interventions and opportunities to make a positive impact.

If your foundation funds health and/or human services, your grantees are likely dealing with the opioid crisis and the wide-ranging damage of addiction.

This panel discussion will help funders better understand the crisis here in Connecticut, learn about the positive work that is unfolding and the role that funders are playing in this work.

The panel will be introduced by Jeanette Weldon, Executive Director, Connecticut Health and Educational Facilities Authority.
