Event Description

Bridges Healthcare, Inc., will sponsor a free community forum to discuss opioid addiction and treatment on Wednesday, May 10, 5:30 to 8:30 at the Savin Rock Conference Center.  

“Let’s Change the Story,” will feature nationally-recognized addiction and psychiatric expert Dr. Petros Levounis, chair of the Department of Psychiatry at Rutgers New Jersey Medical School, who will present information on the addiction process and new treatments available to assist those who want to stop using opioids.  Dr. Levounis has appeared on national television and is featured in numerous videos and articles on addiction.

West Haven Pharmacy will be onsite to prescribe, train and dispense naloxone, the medication used to reverse an overdose. Those who want a prescription should bring their commercial or State insurance card. The CT Dept. of Consumer Protection recently approved offsite licensing for pharmacists for this purpose, so more local residents will have the means to reverse an overdose and reduce the number of deaths from opioid overdose.  West Haven recorded 21 drug overdose deaths in 2016.

When “Hoops in the Hood” Became “Hoops in the House”

When Covid-19 came to Chicago, Hoops in the Hood, LISC's long-running basketball-community-building-and-safety program, morphed into the perfect antidote for quarantine stress and boredom. Now, hundreds of kids and their parents across the city are staying active, and logging their exercise minutes, in a true Chicago-style competition between neighborhoods.

Our Communities Need a Marshall Plan

In his latest video message, LISC CEO Maurice A. Jones reflects on the disproportionate health and economic impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on underinvested communities and communities of color, and calls for a 21st-century Marshall Plan—intensive and broad investment that will both help people and enterprises recover, and redress the inequities that set the stage for the fallout of the current crisis.

We Have Reached the Housing Cliff

As we look back on Affordable Housing Month, marked every year in May, it's clear that the need for safe, affordable housing—as well as the threats to providing it—have never been more acute. Denise Scott, LISC's EVP for Programs, makes a compelling case for why, during the Covid era and beyond, we need a robust national plan to safeguard homes for all of our country's vulnerable residents, as well as for the organizations that make those homes possible.
