Town Hall: Your Voice, Your Future - Opioids: A National Crisis
SEATTLE (KOMO) - Join KOMO and Sinclair Broadcast Group for an hour-long discussion on the opioid crisis affecting America.
This important Opioid Town Hall will create a dialogue on this national epidemic while speaking to community leaders and hearing from those on the front lines about what they encounter in local communities.
The town hall, airing at 2 p.m. PST. Then it will air again at 7 p.m. EST/4p.m. PST.
Eric Bolling will moderate the event from Seattle, Washington as part of the "Your Voice, Your Future" series. Bolling and his wife Adrienne have been outspoken activists in the battle against opioid addiction following the loss of their 19-year old son to an accidental fentanyl overdose in 2017.
