Opioid Crisis Focus in Somers : 1 to 3 p.m. February 7

Eugene Ritchie will host a viewing and discussion of two TED Talks on countering the opioid crisis, from 1 to 3 p.m. February 7, at the Somers Library.

This is one of a series of similar events Ritchie has hosted at the library. His mission is to provide library members and the Somers community with an inspirational forum for personal and professional growth through the viewing and discussion of TED Talks. Each program consists of diverse speakers with short presentations of 10 and 20 minutes long, followed by light refreshments.

The TED Talks for this event are Jan Rader’s “In the Opioid Crisis, Here’s What It Takes to Save a Life” and Chera Kowalski’s “The Critical Role Librarians Play in the Opioid Crisis.” 

These programs are funded by donations to the Friends of the Somers Library.
