BRANDON — “Drug Addiction: A Brandon Community Discussion” will be held today and Wednesday.
The town will again have an opportunity to see the documentary “The Hungry Heart,” from 7 to 9 p.m. tonight at the Brandon Town Hall. Wednesday, a public forum will be held from 6 to 8 p.m., at the Brandon Congregational Church Fellowship Hall.
“The Hungry Heart” provides a look at the often hidden world of prescription drug addiction through St. Albans pediatrician Fred Holmes, who works with patients struggling with this disease. Following the movie will be a question and answer session with Jessica Farnsworth from the West Ridge Treatment Center in Rutland and Mary Alice McKenzie from the Burlington Boys & Girls Club.
The public forum Tuesday, moderated by Bernie Carr, will focus on seven different discussion areas. The goal is to produce an action plan for the community.
