The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia, the District of
Columbia Department of Parks and Recreation, and other government and community partners

are leading an event Thursday, Sept. 20, 2018, at Marvin Gaye Park to raise awareness about the

rising public health crisis caused by drug overdoses.


The event is open to the public and runs from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the park, which is at the

corner of Division Avenue and Foote Street in Northeast Washington. The program is designed

to educate the community about the heroin and opioid epidemic. Substance abuse treatment

counselors will be present to provide information and make direct referrals to treatment

programs. Music will be provided by DJ FLAVA of WKYS Radio (93.9 FM).

Come out for resources, health screenings, food and more at the What’s Going On With Heroin event.
