The Heroin and Opioid Awareness Conference is being held tonight at West Conn.  The University's Justice and Law Society, in conjunction with the Heroin Education Action Team, will host a screening of the documentary “Chasing the Dragon: The Life of an Opiate Addict.”  HEAT is a partner program with the United States Attorney’s Office for the District of Connecticut. The event will take place at 6pm at Ives Concert Hall in White Hall on the Midtown campus.  The documentary was created by the FBI and DEA to educate students and parents about the dangers of addiction. The movie will be followed by a panel discussion with a federal prosecutor, DEA agent, and two local parents who lost children to an opioid overdose.
