Serving on the board of Prevention Point Philadelphia for the last five years, I witnessed firsthand the mounting devastation of the overdose epidemic. Subsequently serving on the Mayor's Taskforce to Combat the Opioid Epidemic and within the Philadelphia Opiate Harm Reduction Collective, I continue working to stop the deaths while simultaneously trying to strike the roots of the epidemic.
