The Attorney General’s Office and the Department of Public Health’s Bureau of Substance Addiction Services and Office of Local and Regional Health will hold a virtual forum about the statewide opioid settlements on Tuesday, March 7 at 3:00 - 4:30 PM ET.
The forum will provide information about five new proposed settlements with Allergan, Teva, Walmart, CVS, and Walgreens, including information on what municipalities need to do to sign on to these settlements by the April 18, 2023 deadline.
Attendees will learn about the settlement participation process, details about the abatement funds that will be available to participating municipalities from these new settlements, and strategies for community engagement in the use of opioid settlement funds. There will also be an opportunity to ask questions.
We invite municipalities, local health boards, community organizations, and the public to attend this forum.
