Please join CONNECT and the Park City Film Series as we screen the powerful documentary, “Dying in Vein: The Opiate Generation,” a deeply personal exploration of opiate and heroin addiction that drops you directly into the lives of an addict in recovery, a couple trying to get clean, a family grieving the loss of their son, and an Emergency Room Physician trying to save one patient at a time.
The event will include post-film Q&A with an exceptional group of panelists: Filmmaker Jenny MacKenzie; University of Utah addiction specialist, Dr. Beth Howell; Director of Utah Naloxone, Sam Plumb; and Roy Parker, Executive Director of the Summit Recovery Foundation.
- To raise awareness about this national public health problem.
