#PATHFORWARD Town Hall on Opioids

The Department of Health and Human Services invites you to participate in the PATH Town Hall on Tuesday, July 24, 2018, 8:30 a.m.–12 p.m. Eastern Time in Washington, DC. The event will include special remarks from HHS leadership, members of Congress, and tribal leaders. A livestream of the event will be accessible for those unable to attend but willing to participate.
