A Regional Approach to the Heroin Crisis

I recently co-hosted a regional heroin summit with Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel to address the growing heroin crisis in our communities. We were fortunate to have local, state and federal leaders, including Senator Dick Durbin, join us.

It was a tremendous opportunity to come together to work toward a solution to a problem that knows no geographic or political boundaries. We all agreed that any solutions must also cross boundaries. We extend our thanks to Comcast, who taped the half-day seminar and will be showing an edited version of it on Comcast On Demand. For On Demand users, select the Get Local tab, and choose the program titled “Heroin Summit.” For X1 users, you can find the video by selecting the Xfinity Services tab and choosing the Get Local tab.

The program can also be watched on YouTube at
