Everyone has heard about the opioid epidemic, but how it is affecting Bryan County and the small businesses here?
The Richmond Hill/Bryan County Chamber of Commerce’s next Lunch and Learn will address the opioid crisis and prescription drug misuse from noon-1:30 p.m. Aug. 15 at the chamber office, located at 2591 Hwy 17, Suite 100 in the Crossroads Center – just around the corner from Uptown Deli.
Mary Fuller, project coordinator for the Bryan County Opioid Prevention Project, will present on the dangers of opioids and other prescription drugs, review the impacts on Bryan County, highlight the organization’s community initiatives and programs, and explain specifically how businesses are impacted by prescription misuse.
She will facilitate a discussion about what businesses are seeing locally and identify resources available for employers to help minimize the impact on their businesses and employees.
In her career, Fuller has provided individual and group counseling, managed diverse social service programs and contracts, and facilitated trainings and orientations. She has worked in human resources and workforce development along with social work and, most recently, was the executive director of Lutheran Services of Georgia in Savannah.
The Lunch & Learn is complimentary to RHBC Chamber members and invited guests and $15 for non-members. Bring your own lunch, but drinks are provided by the chamber. Seating is limited and RSVPs are required by calling 912-756-3444 or e-mailing info@RHBCchamber.org.
