Allegheny-Kiski Health Foundation

Thankful that so many people were able to attend tonight's special Opioid Crisis program in Natrona, presented by the Allegheny-Kiski Health Foundation. This is such a critical topic in our communities today and there simply cannot be enough attention focused on it. We're pleased to host events such as this in partnership with other organizations serving our community.

Youth in the Highlands School District soon will see the movie that was premiered at this event - and it is powerful. It is called Opioid Addiction: Confessions of Pain, Misery & Destruction.

There's a lot of "thank you's" to give here - Knights of Columbus Council 2602 for providing their building, the Health Foundation and its President, John Pastorek, our Building Block of Natrona volunteers; and especially the panelists that answered community questions afterward ...

- VonZell Wade, co-founder of Lost Dreams Awakening
- Ron Kunesky, a panelist and participant in the movie.
- Laurie Johnson-Wade, co-founder of Lost Dreams Awakening
- Chief Terry Kuhns, Frazer Township Police Department
- Daniel and Jeannie Sundo, panelists and participants in the movie
