About the Conference

According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, more than 115 people die of an opioid overdose everyday in the United States. That statistic and the many others like it resonate with the experiences of communities and families across the country. Hosted by Valparaiso University’s Institute for Leadership and Service, Bridge/Work 2019 will build on its core principle of connecting theory and practice to host an integrated discussion that speaks to the many contributing factors driving this epidemic. How do varying disciplines — from medical and health professions to sociology, psychology, political science, chemistry and more — connect around this timely topic? Join us for this vital conversation!
