This Month's Lectures

Wellness Webinar: Surviving in the Age of Fentanyl Poisoning
Chris and Laura Didier- Parents of Zach who died of Fentanyl poisoning from a counterfeit pill
Tuesday, June 7th at 5pm

The CDC has reported in a recent 12 month period, that over 70,000 fentanyl related fatalities have occurred in our nation. This is a rate of 1 death every 7.5 minutes. Many consumers are also unwittingly consuming fentanyl and dying. This webinar will address the growing crisis of fentanyl poisoning and the dangers of counterfeit prescription pills sold on social media. One pill can kill.
