FINDLAY, Ohio (AP) — An Ohio congressman will team up with state officials next month to host a forum looking at opioid addiction in the state.
The meeting is set for June 27 at the University of Findlay.
Republican Congressman Bob Latta and Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine are taking part.
DeWine says these types of forums are important because communities need to play a big role in the fight against opiate addiction and abuse.
The directors of Ohio’s health department and addiction services department also are expected to take part.
This story has been corrected to show the forum is June 27, not Monday.
