    The Phoenix Union High School District (PXU), in collaboration with Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego, Arizona Senator Christine Marsh, health experts, special guests, and community partners, will host a Tele-Town Hall and roundtable discussion about the fentanyl and opioid epidemic in our community.

    The impact of fentanyl reaches far beyond our local public schools. This event is open to all members of the community, students of all ages, and families. The roundtable discussion will feature experts and local leaders who will provide first-hand accounts of the epidemic’s impact on families, highlight steps being taken to confront the problem, and discuss ways in which families can protect their households.

    The District will host a live audience at 4502 N. Central Ave., and following the program, free doses of Narcan rescue medication will be available for those wishing to get trained on its administration.

    The livestream link will be available on this page 15 minutes prior to the start of the event.
