Patrick J. Kennedy to Moderate “Bridging Faith and Science to Combat the Overdose Crisis”

Through a partnership of the Clinton Foundation, the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, and The Centre for Responsible Leadership, national science and faith leaders will convene to explore the promise of a collaborative relationship, reduce stigma about addiction, educate about prevention, treatment, and recovery, and advance policies and programs that save lives.

The third convening in the series, hosted by President Clinton, will be held on Tuesday, February 1, 1–2 p.m. EST, and will focus on how leaders from faith and science can work to end the stigma of addiction and reverse a dangerous trend of increasing overdose deaths. 

The conversation will be moderated by Patrick J. Kennedy, Former U.S. Representative, Lead Author, Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act (Federal Parity Law), Founder of The Kennedy Forum, co-chair of the National Action Alliance for Suicide Prevention’s Mental Health & Suicide Prevention National Response to COVID-19, and co-chair of the Bipartisan Policy Center’s Behavioral Health Integration Task Force; and will feature Dr. Chinazo Cunningham, Acting Commissioner of the NYS Office of Addiction Services and Supports; and Rabbi Arthur Schneier, Senior Rabbi of New York City’s Park East Synagogue and human rights activist.
