The region's painkiller overdose crisis is the topic on Thursday, March 15, during a Town Hall forum sponsored by the Town of East Fishkill.
The forum begins at 7 p.m. in the Town Supervisor's Office.
The community forum, titled "the Opiod Crisis in Our Area," is being conducted by C.A.P.E., the Council on Addiction, Prevention and Education of Dutchess County.
There also will be a free Naloxone (NARCAN) training for those interested. The antidote has been a proven emergency response to opioid overdoses.
East Fishkill Police will have a collection box available for anyone who wishes to deposit unused medications for destruction.
