Name of Speaker: Lexi Reed Holtum
Topic: Please join us on October 10th to listen to Lexi Reed Holtum share her personal story and how to turn the tide on a horrific issue. Learn more about the opioid crisis and how it is a public health emergency; engineered by pharmaceutical companies beginning in the early 90's. The number of deaths from this crisis has only worsened over the years, both nationally and in Minnesota; now surpassing the number of traffic accidents, violent gun deaths and the height of the AIDS epidemic. The opioid crisis is the leading cause of death for Americans under 50.
