Fentanyl crisis forum

Community

VSB students, parents and staff who have questions about the ongoing opioid crisis in British Columbia are invited to attend two forums taking place in Vancouver during the first week of June.

Speakers will include medical personnel from Vancouver Coastal Health, members of the Vancouver Police Department, and a representative from the VSB’s School Age Children and Youth Substance Use Health Promotion Initiative (SACY). These experts will offer an overview and key facts about the overdose crisis, answer questions from the audience, and provide practical advice on prevention and harm reduction. 

The fentanyl forums take place at Templeton Secondary on Tuesday, June 6, 2017, at 6 p.m., and at Magee Secondary on Wednesday, June 7, 2017, at 6 pm.
