Join us on Monday, March 11 for a conversation with the writers

In My Heart StillBeats, Writers for Recovery and Vermont Public Radio highlighted voices from Vermont's recovery community: people recovering from substance use disorder, and people helping those in recovery rebuild their lives. Join us on Monday, March 11 at the Turning Point Center in Burlington to continue the conversation.

As deaths related to opioid use continue to rise across the country, My Heart Still Beats offers stories of hope and lessons learned. We’ll listen to segments from the series and speak with the writers and podcast producers. Join us to discuss the power of storytelling and how it can raise consciousness and start important conversations about difficult topics. And we’ll explore where we go from here to address the opioid crisis, whether you know someone who’s struggling or not.
