In response to the opioid epidemic, NLC released the Opioid Epidemic Task Force Report –an action plan to disrupt this destructive nationwide trend. A key finding from the report was to reach children early, both in school and at home. Aligning with report findings, Discovery Education and the Drug Enforcement Administration established Operation Prevention – a standards-aligned initiative aimed at educating children and youth about the true impacts of prescription opioid and heroin abuse.
Learn how the first and only classroom-based opioid prevention program can help alleviate and ultimately eradicate the issue in your community. Hear from senior officials with the city, federal government agencies, and school district administrators as they discuss the impact on cities across the country and best practices.
