Facing Addiction in America: A National Summit with the Surgeon General 

Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation Vice President William Moyers will be live with U.S. Surgeon General Dr. Vivek Murthy and other national leaders at the historic Paramount Theater in Los Angeles. During this national summit, Dr. Murthy will unveil his office’s long-awaited, groundbreaking report addressing the country’s leading public health crisis.

The summit will unite the media, stakeholders in the addiction field, policymakers and public figures as the national conversation around addiction is spotlighted.

We're proud to have William there to speak and moderate a significant part of the program. It's a historic moment, and we are grateful to join with key allies, including our friends at Facing Addiction, who organized the summit with the Surgeon General's Office.
