On Friday, August 28, 2015 Employment Connection hosted a special community forum on heroin. Dr. William Harvey – the keynote – spoke to a packed room at Employment Connection's offices in St. Louis; Dr. Harvey has worked to stop heroin’s impact on communities at a national level since the 70s and continues to do so today as he acts as a consultant with several national organizations like the National Drug Information Centre for Families in Action.

Along with Dr. Harvey, Nancy McCarthy – STAR’s Co-Chair & Regional Administrator of Missouri Dept. of Corrections, Scott Anders – Deputy Chief of U.S. Probation Office, and Jared Opsal – Public Awareness Specialist for NCADA, shared their perspectives on the current state of heroin and ways to impact change here in St. Louis.
