TUESDAY TOPICS: Opioid Epidemic.

The opioid epidemic that has hit the coasts and other areas of the country has reached Kansas and Wichita, too. No demographic is spared: all incomes, all races, all ages are vulnerable to death by overdose. What can we do in our community to prevent the tragic death & devastation seen in other areas of the country?

Our panelists will include leaders working in this area: Dan East, Capt. of the Wichita Police Department's Special Investigations Bureau, which includes narcotics investigation; Dr. Greg Lakin, physician and legislator; Pastor Dave Fulton, Safe Streets Wichita; and Jan Chandler, Partners for Wichita.

Room opens at 11:30; program begins at Noon. Drinks provided; feel free to bring a brown bag lunch.

League Meeting.

Please put Thursday, December 14, 5:30 pm on your calendar. We will be meeting at the Parsnipity Café in the Epic Center, downtown. This is a new venture, as we have not had a December unit meeting in the past--and a new place as we try for a more central location.

Pau Johnson, who has been eyes and ears for the League in the Legislature will speak on what we can expect from the 2018 Legislative year.
