The G.A.P. Network intended to host a statewide summit in June to support families impacted by addiction and to help them take action to create community change. However, due to ongoing concerns about COVID-19, we are now making The G.A.P. Network Statewide Summit a virtual event.
This upcoming summit will be held virtually on May 6, 2020, from 10-11:30 a.m. and will still provide families with a place of healing and support. This summit will feature Karen Vadino, a nationally recognized speaker and humorist. Karen was well received at The G.A.P. Network Regional Summits held in Dayton and Findlay earlier in the year. She will continue to bring her style of humor and understanding to help people experiencing grief.
With a focus on resiliency, the summit will offer practical tips and tools to help parents, families, and loved ones cope with the loss of a loved one due to substance misuse, addiction, or overdose. Together, we’ll become resilient, work through our grief, find our voice, and turn our grief into advocacy for prevention.
