The Institute for Public Policy and Social Research (IPPSR) will host its first 2019 luncheon public policy forum.
Two leading causes of death in Michigan, highest among males, are opioid overdose and suicide. While the conversation is a difficult one to have, professionals who are working with those who are vulnerable to these tragic endings, and their families, are eager to discuss possible policy changes that are likely to help curb, if not prevent, the trending crises.  
Panel includes:
  • Jennifer E. Johnson, PhD, C. S. Mott Endowed Professor of Public Health; Professor of OBGYN, Psychiatry and Behavioral Medicine with the College of Human Medicine at Michigan State University
  • Juli Liebler, Ph.D., Assistant Professor and Director of Outreach with Michigan State University School of Criminal Justice, Former Chief of Police for the City of East Lansing, and FBI National Academy Graduate
Although this event is free and open to the public, pre-registration is strongly encouraged: REGISTER
