The next wave of America’s overdose crisis


In this webinar, an epidemiologist and two Pulitzer Prize-winning reporters will discuss the latest phase of the nation’s overdose epidemic as drugs laced with fentanyl and other poisonous synthetics flood the nation. They will discuss demographic trends and the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on prevention, treatment and recovery. Journalists will gain deep insights into an epidemic that killed more than 100,000 Americans last year and will learn practical tips for covering the crisis.
