Governor Janet Mills will host her 3rd Annual Opioid Response Summit on Thursday, July 15. The annual summit is part of the state's commitment to fighting the opioid epidemic, and convenes leaders from around Maine to share ideas, strategies, and best practices to help Maine people affected by this crisis.
The full-day program will feature live presentations, poster sessions, and prerecorded panel discussions, with the voices of persons in recovery featured prominently again this year.
The summit's theme, Perseverance, Prevention, and Promise reflects the resolve of our state to continue to work together to promote and achieve wellness and recovery in all communities across our great state.
We will hear from Attorney General Aaron Frey and the Director of Maine CDCP Nirav Shah, MD, J.D. The afternoon will feature a panel discussion with leaders in opioid response from the Biden-Harris Administration.
