Faith and Health Connection: the Opioid Settlement
February 24 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
In 2021, it was announced that North Carolina would receive $750 million from the multistate settlement with opioid pharmaceutical distributors Cardinal, McKesson, AmerisourceBergen, and Johnson & Johnson. This money will soon be coming to counties, cities, and the general assembly.
On February 24th from 12:00 pm – 1pm, the North Carolina Conference of the United Methodist Church, The Northern Piedmont District of the Western North Carolina Conference of the United Methodist Church, and Partners in Health and Wholeness is hosting the first of a series of webinars titled Faith and Health Connection: the Opioid Settlement. The webinar will focus on why we as people should care about this settlement and what it could mean for the communities we serve. We’ll learn more about the background of the Opioid Settlement, “What is the Memorandum of Agreement?”, and most importantly, ways congregations can get involved in advocating for the spending of this money in our state.
